Emoji Pill / Medication Design

Emoji Pill
Emoji Pill

People often feel frustrated when taking medicines, because they subconsciously think they are sick. However, taking medication is a process of self-recovery. Shouldn’t it be relaxing and pleasant?

Different from traditional medicine, Emoji Pill looks like sweet candy. Eating candies is something delightful, and the cute image of emoji is beloved by the public;Therefore, I have grafted these two behavioral symbols onto each other. The intake of Emoji Pills is similar to eating lovely emoji candies, which reminds patients of their happy memory of chatting with friends via emojis, making the process of taking medicine a delightful enjoyment.
