all that inspires me to live each day yearning to evolve as an artist, as a person.... makes me want to walk faster as there is so much more to see & yet makes me want to stroll along observing every little thing around... full of beauty.. full of wonderful things... all that imbibed together creates ART....

“Love Hurts was created based on an assignment to make an activity book. I thought it would be more interesting to make a sort of activity kit instead. From there, I came up with the concept of Love Hurts: A first aid kit for a broken heart. Initially, I knew that I did not want to make a kit of sadness and wanted to approach the product with a sense of humor. Love Hurts contains all of the essentials for going through a rough breakup such as dark chocolate, vodka, an excellent mix CD, and, if all else fails, tissues. All of the products come neatly packaged in a compact kit. A promo video was also made to show the products in use. “

This first series are uppercase only and are based on H&FJ’s Gotham Typeface. There are three sizes available, 2” (push-out puzzle-style boards) and 4” (parts in a bag) and 8” (flat packed).
Each month, they will release a new custom letterform and so far there are already some nice ampersands, one at 10.5”.
MATTER Design Director Rick Griffith was quoted as saying: “These letterform puzzles are a hearkening back, and yearning for a time when people used to make their own toys and take pride in solving interactive physical puzzles. People can piece together individual letters, compose 3D words, or experiment with gravity, balance, and their own personal design.”

“The strategic positioning ‘Strong Together’ was visually articulated in the overlapping of the individual letters of the brandmark. A broad spectrum of colours was used to represent core internal pillars of love, hope, strength, wisdom and belonging creating a positive brand expression for both internal and external audiences. Developing the system further, supergraphics were created using enlarged, cropped sections of the brand device. This strong visual language and colour system has been applied to all facets of the business from online, office interiors, merchandise and wayfinding signage.”
