Love for Lettering, Languages and Lumber


House Industries, Lettering, Love Blocks, Uncle Goose

In a world where social differences and lack of understanding often result in cultural, political and military clashes, it was refreshing to research, comprehend and illustrate the universal language of love in twelve colloquially-correct Ken Barber compositions.

Ken Barber sez: The House Hearts project initially seemed simple and straightforward, but we found that conveying the significance of love while keeping it playful and accessible was a challenge. Selecting a dozen contrasting yet complimentary styles while adapting the lettering to fit in the unaccommodating heart shape added another hurdle. The biggest test was drawing in 12 languages and eight different writing systems. Thankfully a number of colleagues and native speakers offered a helping hand with invaluable insight.

Love is an emotion and not a product or holiday, but we’re not above capitalizing on it so we created a new series of prints and two sets of wooden blocks.

Here’s a post from 2007 featuring, among other things, a 33 pattern fabric motorcycle seat. Here’s the same seat five years and 50,000 miles later:
