Welcome to Smiley! Our mission is to spread positivity and create a happier world through smiles. For over 50 years, we've been collaborating, partnering, and gaining valuable experiences to achieve this goal. As we look ahead to the next 50 years and beyond, we constantly find new ways to encourage people to "Take the Time to Smile." After all, what's more inspiring and universal than a smile?

Let's rewind to Paris, France, where a young journalist named Franklin Loufrani had a brilliant idea. In 1971, while working at France-Soir, Loufrani grew tired of the constant negative news and wanted to highlight positive stories for readers. So, he created a simple yet powerful symbol: a smiling yellow face. This iconic Smiley face has remained relevant throughout five decades of cultural shifts, from free love to raves to the digital revolution.

At Smiley, we embody the spirit of that original creation, using it as a symbol to remind everyone of the power of a smile. Join us in spreading joy, optimism, and happiness worldwide. Let's make the world a brighter and happier place together!
