This is a universal symbol for happiness, it’s creator and the story behind it.
In late 1963, graphic designer Harvey Ball drew a crude freehand smile, then added a pair of eyes to make a more complete image.
Ball created his design for the State Mutual Life Assurance Company of America. The insurance company wanted to help assuage low employee morale after some difficult mergers and reorganizations, and asked Ball to create a simle smile design they could use for buttons. So Ball made the smiley face, and the insurance company printed a conservative 100. The happy yellow buttons proved so popular, State Mutual Life Insurance started ordering them in lots of 10,000. Ball had nothing to do with the design after his ten minute sketch.
