Love Is All You Need: Backstory & Design Process
I do not have any children yet, but I do have three wonderful nephews that I love dearly. One night I was sitting watching them sleep while I was sketching in my sketch book. I began to think about how much I love them and how much they love and look up to me. It was at that moment that I was inspired to create the "LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED" design.
Instead of using actual letters, I decided to use shapes to spell out the word love: two triangles, a circle and a square. The shapes give the design a simple and childlike feel. I think its very important that we stay close to our inner child. Children are so innocent and their love is genuine. Sometimes its easy to get caught up in the allure of success and the excitement of possessions. However, I feel as though it means absolutely nothing without love.
"Where there is love there is life." - Mahatma Gandhi
