Invention of the smiley face :D

The smiley face was invented by a man named Harvey Ball. A company had started a ‘friendship campaign’ to get the employees to smile whenever they answered the phone, paid a claim or typed a report. They asked Harvey Ball for a support. He spent ten minutes designing this and got forty five Euro. Unfortunately neither Harvey Ball nor the company copyrighted the smiley face and in late 1960′s the smiley face became the most well-known image in the country.

    I think her products are so popular today because the products that she thought of were very practical and she knew that women would like to wear i.e. a suit instead of a wearing a corset or any uncomfortable garments. She also designed a little black dress ( black was usually the colour of mourning after someone’s death) she changed the look of this colour to a nice dress to wear out to a dinner or any occasion.
