With emojis quickly becoming the most dominant form of communication and starting to replace whole words and phrases, Better Said in Words is a conceptual packaging solution for what packaging on our shelves could eventually look like in years to come.

The aim of the packaging is to highlight just how much we rely on raw forms of language and as much as we use emojis in our everyday lives, we can’t completely rely on them to communicate.

What’s Unique?
The uniqueness of this concept is that how one person may interpret what is being said on the packaging through emoji, someone else may interpret in a completely different way. This highlights the importance of cherishing the language that we have, and just what could happen to worldwide packaging if the emoji continues to dominate communication.
