Google Design is sponsoring HYPERLINKED, a new AIGA/NY series that explores the unique ways in which practitioners in New York and San Francisco are shaping design and technology. We recently kicked off #hyperlinkedsfny with two events in New York: The Business of Design: The good, the bad, and the bottom-line and In The House with Tumblr & Pinterest.
On the Google Design speaking circuit: Jonathan Lee will be participating in the Van Alen Institute’s spring series, The Rupture (6/16); Rob Giampietro is slated to speak at Typographics (6/17); Amber Bravo and Rob will discuss content strategy at Pixel Talks (7/14); Matias Duarte will be presenting at Brand New (9/15).

More emoji press coverage:
“I do hope the emoji world gets a few more women, because right now, it’s a bit of an eggplant fest.”
– Stephen Colbert
“As far as emoji proposals go, this one is high-profile, with backing from Google and Unicode’s president.”
“The proposed emoji adds include a doctor, a software engineer, a chef, a teacher, and our personal favorite, a Ziggy Stardust-inspired rock star—well played, Google.”
“When it comes to emojis, women can be brides or princesses, paint their fingernails, get a haircut and go dancing in a red dress. . . . But it may be changing.”
– The New York Times
