    That wider than wide eurostile sans they're using for their headlines... make it stop.

    Actually no company in JP owns Emoji. The closest thing to "ownership" would be the Unicode Consoritum, who decides which emoji gets added to the Unicode spec.

    Shigetaka Kurita from DoCoMo created the original emoji set.

    I think it's more like insurance.

    Protection against the flaky generalists & shit managers in the industry opting to water down what a designer can offer (user research, interaction design, visual design, usability testing) – tucking them into a production funnels.

    And against UX evangelists / out-dated iA wankers looking to be the Moses of button sizes & site architecture.

    People have recently been (and will be for a long while) milking David Kelley's cows for clicks.

    Didn't do your homework for an important meeting or come up with actual design strategy?

    No problem. Ride that dreamy-sounding IDEO blueprint into the ground. Cover them in vague, cosmetic terminology until those lovely account jokers are sauced-up with feeling of security.

    Job well done.

    While you're at it, don't forget to say "user experience" a few times. (Oh, you don't know how many times? Just match the same frequency as an airhorn in a radio track they're playing on Hot 97 at 2am on a Saturday.)
