MAMIMU Tokyo Love

I have been exploring the visual language of LOVE. I was particularly interested in using different forms of dots and lines because in Japan they say a red string is connecting you with ”the one” from the moment you were born. So romantic.

I also wanted to combine the letters from English alphabet and Japanese. So I designed my kanji 愛 (love) with a love heart in the middle as if it's skipping with joy to express the magical feeling of having someone special in the world.
