The Goodwill logo is notable for its clever design. At first sight the symbol in the top left-hand corner of the rectangle looks like a smiley face. At the same time it looks like a lower case letter “g”. You just need to take a closer look at the image to notice it.

The letter “g” in the wordmark “goodwill” placed below has the same design. Using just these two stylized elements, the designer, Joseph Selame, managed to communicate a feeling of happiness and create a real emblem of Goodwill’s mission.

The “g” symbol used twice represents the faces of the people within the organization.

The color palette of the “Smiling G” emblem is blue, black and white.
