&walsh creates hundreds of relatable emojis on designer struggles and working from home

hundreds of relatable emojis designed by new york city-based creative studio &walsh are now available to download, based on some of the shared experiences of those working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic. the series of icons reflect the struggles of social distancing, the challenges of freelancing, and the misadventures of creative life in 2020 in a humorous manner. jessica walsh, creative director and founder of &walsh, hopes that the emojis and accompanying memes will help individuals express themselves more conveniently and creatively online at this time.

‘now more than ever we need more ways to express ourselves, since communication is all digital,’ tells jessica walsh. ‘we’re also all going through unique and difficult times in 2020 that call for new language. we hope these can provide some delight or comic relief to people’s day… or just make it a little easier to communicate how shitty you’re feeling!’

one set of emojis is catered towards graphic designers — featuring familiar interfaces and design tools — while a second set widely relates working from home and life this year. examples include humorous parodies of some popular adobe programs, some stay-at-home outfits, quarantine essentials, superhero nurses and many more.
