Emoji Idiom

Creative visual communication


Raise your hand if you love emojis. Great, this is what this warmup is all about.

What I want you to do is

1. (2min) Everyone has one minute to think of a phrase or well-known saying and to translate it into emoji speech.

2. Share the riddles one by one via chat. The one who guesses first continues

3. If someone is quick at guessing several riddles decide as a group who will continue. In case your group can't solve the riddle, help them out or resolve the answer.


This exercise shows you the power of visualization to get to a common understanding in the team, to spark creativity and fun in teamwork.

Alternatively, you can ask for

- famous movies in emoji speech

- famous songs, or bands in emoji speech.
