THE STORY of HOW OUR LESS THAN THREE CAME TO BE

Please join me in getting your “Less Than 3 = Love” @represent Apparel at:

www.represent.com/dhj
To help support my chosen charity, The Alzheimer's Foundation of America @alzfdn
This is OUR shirt, Mates! It all started with my embarrassing Social Media faux pas.
As people started to find me, I kept seeing <3 popping up in my feeds. As a daft “newb”, I actually thought I was being trolled and that people were rating me unfavorably! That is until the generous community quickly (whilst stifling their laughter, I’m sure) educated me that <3 was an old texting emoji for a heart and was meant to say “LOVE”. Well, haha… THAT felt much better.

Others, thank goodness, soon told me that they too had been confused by it at one time. Phew. Now I wasn’t alone. I had love and empathy coming on my side. Then a lovely woman on Twitter told me that she and her partner actually say, “I Less Than Three You” to each other after I just had used the same turn of phrase; being the cheeky math nerd I am.

Now we had something; OUR official inside joke! It got hash-tagged, re-tweeted, memed, and shortened to #LTTU. It warmed my heart and showed me, a social media critic, what GOOD could come from Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Well, now, that mistake, turned joke, turned meme, turned apparel is going to do some good in the world. Profits from the sales will go to benefit my very personal and chosen charity: The Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

For my Nana. And my wonderful Grandfather, Aunts, Mother and part-time caregiver who nurtured her and gave comfort.

ORIGINAL SKETCH FOR DHJ's LESS THAN 3=LOVE CAMPAIGN WITH @represent
Apparel Launch Monday July 24

I consider this a graphic “mash up” if you will. Nothing new or groundbreaking but at the same time wholly original to OUR inside joke and term of endearment for kindness.

I wanted it to be graphic and nostalgic and, as an architect, it was also very important to me that the design be balanced and “feel” right. Each letter lives within it’s own Golden Ratio rectangle as do the 3 sections of the phrase. (NERD) Balancing the positive and negative space was key to me as was making sure there was equal massing on each side of the two Axes. Kerning was key.

I felt it would be cool to have the 3 and the E be mirrors of each other. I wanted it to be a simple “EQUATION” and translation. The Math Nerd in me. Also, I wanted the equal sign to be front and center and to tie into the international symbol for ALL HUMAN RIGHTS.
We played with the void space in the “O” in Love. AFA logo, Men of Letters, Plain, or a Simple heart. For various reasons we went with the simple heart. Perhaps if this printing goes well, there is talk of another limited edition run with the MOL logo in the O.
Thanks for reading. I hope you know that while it is simple, thought and care was put into every graphic detail by me and the amazing team at represent.com

So delighted to be working with the incredibly smart, funny, talented, kind, creatively generous, insert superlative here, gorgeous @autumn_reeser !! She makes collaborating just so darn fun and easy.
Week one is already done, and I think we might be making something nice for you Christmas movie fans out there :)
Always grateful to the @hallmarkchannel and @hallmarkmovie and Mystery Channel for letting me play in their kind and heartwarming world.
