Funk’N Perk Everyone Up with Smiley Face Wall Decals
The smiley face or happy face represents a smiling human face. It’s generally portrayed with two dots for eyes and a half circle for the mouth in a yellow circle background. The happy face graduated to the “smiley,” a term used to describe the online emoticon.
Here’s an interesting tidbit about when the happy face may have been first invented. Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts, devised the face in 1963 for an insurance company looking for a marketing campaign to boost its employee’s morale. Since Ball didn’t promote or trademark the image, it fell into the public domain in the US. Ball’s only earnings from it was his initial $45 fee. Now that sucks. *sad face*. Also, kind of interesting that a fellow named ‘Ball’ invented the happy face.
Smiley faces have long since progressed into emoticons that feature multiple feelings. We all know just how badly our online comments can be misinterpreted without the addition of a smiley face, an lol, or a wtf. It’s good to remember that the person reading your comment reads it in the mood they’re in at the time, not the mood you intended. Placing the correct emoticon with your post can overcome the reader’s predisposition to put their feelings of the moment into it.
Perks to Having Emoticons on the Wall
Not only do emoticons add color, fun, and interest to a space, they can also be used cheekily. When a person wants to express their emotion, they can point to the emoticon that represents it. Indeed a valuable tool for teachers.
