To the Nines Well, the 90s

You already know our conference theme is “Love and Leadership” – these are the values driving Operation Smile as it looks ahead to its next decade of service.

But why does the ISLC 2022 logo look like something out of the U.S. sitcom “Saved By The Bell”?

We’re glad to share a little about the thinking that went into our conference logo and overall look and feel.

This year – 2022 – marks 30 years of ISLC and 40 years of Operation Smile. We want to celebrate these exciting milestones by channeling the energy of the organization’s early years: the 90s.

Embracing 90s colors, motifs and vibe is a nod to the scrappy, can-do spirit of Operation Smile as it first started to reach and serve patients born with cleft conditions worldwide.

We like to think our nostalgic conference design complements our future-oriented conference theme because it’s a celebration of our history AND a call-to-action to steer our future. It encourages all of us to honor the roots of the organization AND help it continue to grow in the next decade.

So, pack your scrunchies and play your 90s tunes, because at ISLC 2022 we’ll enjoy the 90s while preparing for the future – both Operation Smile’s and your own!
