Inconsistencies in the drawing and interpretation of smiley faces: an observational study

And thus, an icon was born. As you probably expect, that was not how the iconic smiley face was created. There was no cross-country runner or struggling t-shirt salesman, there was no truck or mud puddle. There was, however, a graphic designer, some devious salesmen, and an ambitious newspaper man — all add up to a surprisingly complex history for such a simple graphic. Ball came up with the image in when he was commissioned to create a graphic to raise morale among the employees of an insurance company after a series of difficult mergers and acquisitions.

The Visual Language Of Schematic Faces

A smiley , sometimes referred to as a smiley face , is a basic ideogram that represents a smiling face. Since the s it has become part of popular culture worldwide, used either as a standalone ideogram, or as a form of communication, such as emoticons. The smiley began as two dots and a line to represent eyes and a mouth. More elaborate designs in the s emerged, with noses, eyebrows, and outlines. The first time a yellow and black design was used was by the radio station, WMCA for its "Good Guys" campaign in the early s.
But that was the old me. Now, the more I explore and decode smiley faces and their related family members, the more appreciation I have for the complexity of how two elliptical eyes and a mouth line can communicate emotion. The fact that we understand the expressions depicted in schematic faces—from emoticons to smiley faces to simple cartoons—is a fascinating feature of the human brain. Using schematic faces in various types of visual communication is one way to leverage the human ability to interpret facial language quickly.
