I Heart Design is a collection of designs as selected by 80 prominent graphic designers, typographers, teachers, scholars, writers and design impresarios.
Designers have preferences, like modern over post-modern, serif over sans serif, decorative over minimal, but designers could not be engaged in design practice if they did not love design.
The reasons for such a charged emotion varies from individual to individual, but there are certain commonalities regarding form, function, outcome, and more.
Design triggers something in all of us that may be solely aesthetic or decidedly content-driven, but in the final analysis, we are drawn to it through the heart.
Designs featured include the iconic CBS eye, the stark Kodak identity, the Coca-Cola bottle, and, of course, The Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers album cover.
