In the summer of 2008, Angela Guzman, today designer at Google, practiced at Apple. It was during her last year as a graphic design student at the Rhode Island School of Design on the east coast of the United States. Angela Guzman took place next to Apple designer Raymond at the company's design department.
There, along with Raymond, she formed the 500 first emojis to take place in the Iphone, a work she now describes in a post on Medium to celebrate

Angela Guzman describes how she began her internship with a quick course in Apple design, and then she started emoji creation. Every emoji was created from the outset with an unprecedented sense of detail. Angela Guzman describes:
"No matter how fast I could spit one of me, I was constantly looking at the details. The direction of the wood fibers, how the dots looked on the apples and the eggplant, how the leaves looked like the hibiscus, how the leather was sewn on the football. The details never ended. "
Steve Jobs then reviewed every new round of emojis before they could be approved.
Steve Jobs, however, did not seem to have any problem with Raymond's decision to reuse the lean pile of manure (as Voice Over calls it) at the top of a glass pan. However, without eyes and not in the same brown color. In its first version, it was exactly the same shape, while the glass pane in recent years had a new shape.
The very first emojis on an Apple phone was launched in Japan in November 2008, when Emoji was still relatively unknown in English speaking countries. Today, as we all know, an important part of how many people throughout the world communicate.
