{Poster Design} Love is Blind

The designer explored the tangible essence of love through the lens of Concrete Poetry in this poster. 

Lingyi transcends traditional narratives by embodying love in a physical form. "Love is Blind" utilizes the visual acuity chart as a metaphor for love's inherent impermanence, loneliness, and illusion of fulfillment. The poster illustrates how love's blindness envelops individuals, leaving them to see only 愛, the traditional Chinese character for love, regardless of clarity or perception. 

The work was showcased at the "Narratives of Love" - The 1st "Of Love" International Poster Biennale, 2023.
