Voices and Visions
The Harold Grinspoon Foundation asked eighteen designers and artists from around the world to contribute to their Voices & Visions initiative. They were asked to interpret powerful messages from Jewish thinkers in the hope that the resulting art would engage the Jewish people in conversations regarding their own identity.
We were given a quote by Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Kotzk; “There is nothing more whole than a broken heart”. It seemed that there was a simple message to communicate; that it was only by embracing the brokenness that the heart can be whole and stronger.
With that in mind, the visual succinctly uses the universal symbol of a plaster to communicate the idea of hearts, brokenness, healing and wholeness in one image, whilst the handwritten quote suggests the intimacy of a love letter.

“Marvellous work! I think it not only transcends language and religion but sums the quote up with a certain sense of brevity. I love it.”Michael Peters – Brand Consultant
