Emojis to Scale is a fun website that orders emojis (from the mosquito to the Milky Way) by their real-world dimensions. Artist and designer, Javier Bórquez, was inspired by a Tweet, “Why did the chicken cross the road? Because it was bigger than the cars.” A trail of emojis followed showing the rooster emoji towering over a line of cars and vans. Go to https://javier.xyz/emoji-to-scale/ to see the result.
