Our Christmas reindeer make a reappearance this week in time for Valentine’s Day to wish you the best day whether you’re sharing it with someone special, someone random or whether you’re just having a special date with yourself.
Here at re:design we heart many things – LEGO blocks, huskies, bacon, The Good Wife, Christmas Eve and I could really go on – but books are definitely in our top three. And now that Valentine’s Day is upon us again we profess our love for literature with a series of (literally) heart-centered covers.
Heart is a fun shape to work with and surprisingly versatile. Each cover uses the shape as the center of the composition around which a symbolic illustration and typography are arranged. The books range from pulp romances through venerable classics to postmodernist experiments but all feature some version of the eternal love theme.
And we wish all of you a happy Valentine’s Day (either spent with your beloved person or with your beloved book).
Loved by those who are in love, dreaded by others, the Valentine’s Day is coming soon. On this occasion we are presenting a lovable identity designed by us some time ago. (Yes, we promised a different post, but it will come up next.)
The mark is a simple logotype (set in geometric, yet friendly Gotham Rounded) accompanied by a custom Copyright/Love symbol.
The city of Chełmno wanted to create an identity centered around St. Valentine’s Day, which is celebrated there quite intensely compared to other cities (though this sounds kinda kinky and that’s not how we meant it). Some may find our solution a little too literal, but it captured the aim of the city’s authorities. We’ve chosen hot pink to stand out a little from all the red hearts crowding the streets on February 14th. The mark can be accompanied by Chełmno’s tagline: The City of Lovers. The symbol allows for building ornaments.
