NOH8 Campaign

Inspired by Robert Indi­ana’s LOVE sculp­ture, I orig­i­nally designed it as donation-fundraiser for the “No On 8″ cam­paign. Due to its fluid Design mean­ing and impli­ca­tions, it can be uni­ver­sally used to express your intol­er­ance to any form of “Hate” (H8).

If you are inter­ested in pur­chas­ing t-shirts, bags, hats, but­tons, etc. with the NOH8 Design, I have set up a store­front with the NOH8 prod­uct line over at:

Par­tial pro­ceeds from this prod­uct line will be donated towards the cam­paign against Propo­si­tion 8.1

In the mean­time, spread the word… http://justamemo.com/noh8

Update: There seems to be a NOH8 Cam­paign (a pho­to­graphic silent protest). More info here.

Typography of “LOVE” by Robert Indiana

With all the cur­rent ini­tia­tives of get­ting peo­ple to go out and vote for this upcom­ing Novem­ber, I got an idea for another DIY project. Think­ing of inspi­ra­tion, I hap­pen to like how the “LOVE” sculp­ture by Robert Indi­ana stuck out. One of the tasks I needed to get me started with the project was to find the type used for it.

After a while, I found a post in the Typophile forums which for­tu­nately was the same sub­ject as my quest. From this, it seems that Claren­don Black is a good start­ing point. Though close, some tweak­ing will still have to be done by hand.

Any­ways, that’s one task down. I’m just hop­ing I can fin­ish the project weeks before Novem­ber. It’ll be a nice Design workout.

PS. Here’s a poster of Robert Indiana’s “LOVE” sculp­ture in NYC if you are dig­ging it for your digs:
