Harvey Ross Ball, a graphic designer from Worcester, Massachusetts, is credited with inventing the iconic smiley face in 1963

Harvey Ross Ball, a graphic designer from Worcester, Massachusetts, is credited with inventing the iconic smiley face in 1963.

 At the time, Ball was approached by a local insurance company, State Mutual Life Assurance Company, to design an image that would uplift the spirits of their employees. The company wanted a symbol that would promote a positive work environment and improve employee morale.

In a mere 10 minutes, Ball sketched the now-famous smiley face, consisting of a bright yellow circle with two black dots for eyes and a gentle, curved line representing a smile. The simplicity and universal appeal of the design made it an instant hit.

For his creative contribution, Harvey Ross Ball was compensated with a modest payment of $45. Little did he know that his creation would go on to become one of the most recognizable symbols worldwide.0
