Amber Aultman-Houston Loves Design

We recently asked 12 of our members to interpret the symbol most synonymous with love—the heart—for the 2012 I Love Design poster project. Each person brought a different creative interpretation. Here is today’s rendering of the classic love icon, created by Amber Aultman-Houston.

When I think about design and what I love about it, pattern, texture, and color are the first things that come to mind. It probably comes from my textile design background, but I’m a sucker for a repeat pattern. When starting this project, I knew I wanted to create some sort of repeat pattern that would be fun, sweet, and a little quirky… just how I think love should be. It was from here that I decided to use ostriches and some Photoshop love to get where I wanted to go.

Check back each day for a new interpretation. The full poster will be unveiled and sold at AIGA Jacksonville’s annual Valentine to the creative community, I Love Design, on Thursday, February 16.
