Happy Valentines! Hope you spend it with someone truly magnetic.
This comes a few days after St. Valentine’s but hopefully you are still in a romantic mood. This year Experyment Science Center chose magnets as the theme of their yearly evening for adults and we designed the poster and other materials. As previously, participants had a chance to look at love from a scientific point of view.
We continued the designs with the style we have already developed for this event but this year we had a chance to add a man to the illustration. In fact, we had to work on him a little bit because the first version was bearded and we decided we didn’t like that. In the end he seems younger and a bit more, well, science-oriented.
In what has become a bit of a tradition, this year again we celebrate St. Valentine’s by sharing the poster we did for Experyment Science Center. The poster is an invitation for an adults’ evening where, among other attractions, experts try to explain love in scientific terms. This year’s theme included the chemistry of love and how different chemicals are responsible for the emotions that we feel.
In what has become a trademark for this series we again chose to illustrate a lovely lady but this time we focused on perfume and the love compound and not so much on her science-related look. We chose intense color scale with hot pinks offset by aquas.
So please enjoy your St. Valentine’s Day tomorrow, whether celebrating it with your loved ones or just doing something fun for yourselves. We are convinced that any holiday is worth celebrating, whether in its spirit or differently – that’s up to you.
So, did you have a good St Valentine’s Day? We had some tiny colorful cake, it was pretty good but we’re all for conventional, they-may-even-be-sappy holiday celebrations. We get if it’s not your thing, though.
Anyway, our Valentine-related project this year was a poster for Experyment Science Centre. Like last year, they prepared an evening of activities for adults, explaining love phenomena in scientific terms. We decided to create a poster that would form a series with the last one so once again we started with a romantic lady, this time surrounded by particles. Then we followed the client’s suggestion (which was a very good one) to add an android that would refer to the theme of the lecture and so the whole illustration got a sort of retro sci-fi character, which we’re very happy with.
We have a series of covers to show you but first come two thematic posts on the occasion of St. Valentine’s Day. This week’s poster is a design for Experyment Science Center, which, while normally mostly focused on activities for children, for Valentine’s prepared an evening for adults. We looked for a way to combine science and love in a not-overly-serious way that would also be consistent with the other posters for children’s events that we design.
Also, stay tuned for our next Saint Valentine’s Day post next week.
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.
