Hi - I'm Federico in Amsterdam and a European card company is looking into a line of alternative valentine's day cards for Peace. Cards on themes of peace, global unity and community would give publicity and raise money for peace orgs and be a commercial alternative to the line of romantic cards sold in February (as well as maybe other times of the year).
I am seeking unique designs on peace - utlizing and maybe expanding the peace dove image - what does global unity or peace or even valentine's day (A day about Love) look like in a more connected, technological and also back to basics sustainable 21st century? What images come up? I'm the director of The Valentine Peace Project - I work with peace poems and flowers so many images on my website (valentinepeaceproject.org) reflect that (as well as the photos). What other dynamic images can be created to make peace a dynamic consumer product the way today many green products are sold? This is a new business idea so there will be money at some point - first it will be publicity for the artist submitting the design (the company helping me has card lines in health food and holistic cafes and stores in the Netherlands/Belgium/Luxembourg area. I also have US connections (where I'm originally from).
Re-design peace - re-imagine Valentine's day. If you have any thoughts or images you'd like to submit you can email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
