Stage 2

Over the last decade, emoji’s, GIFs, memes and selfies have traveled from niche corners of deep cultures to mainstream media as tools for people and brands to help clarify a message’s intent, to add a layer of humor or flirtation, or to share feelings that are hard to put into words – and sometimes a little of everything all at the same time. As people evolve, as culture continues to shift, and as new technologies arise, these new tools help us bridge the communication gap between what we mean and what we say. Hear creatives and strategists in technology, media, art and marketing discuss how visual communication has changed the way we communicate with our friends, consumers and audiences.
