‘I’m a big believer that if you work hard, you get back what you put in – so I created this happy “working hard” emoji. I’m also a believer that everyone should be themselves. Unless, of course, they’re being a dick. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to make this emoji for when you need to tell someone to stop being a dick.’ — Jan Kallwejt

Before dedicating himself to illustration he studied advertising and worked as a graphic designer and art director in agencies in Warsaw and Hamburg.

These custom emoji artworks originally featured in the FL@33-designed book The Story of Emoji by Gavin Lucas (Prestel Publishing, March 2016). If you could create a new emoji, what would it be? Gavin Lucas asked a number of image-makers from around the world to design new emoji characters they wish really existed. Book contributions were submitted just before iOS 9 was released (which also included the 'Metal Fingers' / 'Devil's Horns' emoji addition). One day soon – hopefully – all these bespoke emoji suggestions will be included... This one inch (25mm) button badge series is a collaboration between Stereohype, Gavin Lucas and the selected emoji contributors Ali Graham, Crispin Finn, David Henckel, FL@33, Friso Blankevoort, Hey Studio, Jan Kallwejt, Julian Morey, Liza Nelson, Lucy Vigrass, Matt Chase, Matthew Bromley, Mr Bingo, Nick Shea, Noma Bar, Peskimo, Richard Hogg, Rob Flowers, Serge Seidlitz, Tane Williams and TwoPoints. Stereohype sells Emoji Series badges separately and gives them away as a free surprise badge with selected Stereohype T-shirts. Released: April 2016 as part of the book launch exhibition.
