The perpetually happy "Smiley" face, with its yellow face and two black dot
eyes, was invented in 1963. It was originally created to boost morale among
employees of an insurance company.
According to the Smithsonian Institution, the smiley face as we know it
today was created by Harvey Ross Ball, an American graphic artist. In 1963,
Ball was employed by State Mutual Life Assurance Company of Worcester,
Massachusetts (now known as Hanover Insurance) to create a happy face to
raise the morale of the employees. Ball created the design in ten minutes
and was paid $45 (equivalent to $368 in 2018).
His rendition, with a bright yellow background, dark oval eyes, full smile,
and creases at the sides of the mouth, was imprinted on more than fifty
million buttons and became familiar around the world.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
