10 on 10: February Design Inspiration

10 on 10 is a monthly column featuring 10 pieces of visual inspiration. Each month has a theme, and this month’s is: hearts and love.

In honor of the launch of The Love Project, I feel like hearts are in order. I knew of a few hearts and love historically represented in design (Milton Glaser’s iconic “I Heart NY”, for one). But I was also happy to stumble upon some contemporary designs and illustrations that were fun to look at. Prints that wink, posters to hang, and women who rock: get inspired by the following collection.

Note: You ask why the title “10 on 10”? Because these posts will come out on the 10th of each month. “But, Maria, you missed the 10th.” Yeah, I know. But I had to show you the love. Even if it’s a few days late.

I’ve been working with Maria for years and every single time I am filled with a sense of relief and enthusiasm for my work when I see what she creates. She has an impeccable ability to take what’s in my mind and put it online and in print in way that resonates and rejuvenates. If you feel like the level of work you envision in your head is different from what you are putting out into the world, getting a brand refresh or overhaul with Maria is a must. It will make you feel so much better!
