Caitlin Armstrong 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 Caitlin Armstrong.

My design styles change with the seasons, sometimes organic, sometimes strictly typography. Lately, I have been interested in basic shapes and the textures – or lack thereof – that can come out of them. . I began playing with the shape of a triangle, as it is closely related to the shape of a heart. I started to notice a stained glass texture being created with the layers of triangles, with new colors being created by the different tints overlapping each other.

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.
