I Heart Manchester

After the riots in Manchester this summer, the council launched a logo around town, the I heart MCR campaign, which basically copied Milton Glaser's famous I heart NY icon. Done in a quick turnaround after the riots, it served its purpose,
to try and bring about some sense of community spirit in Manchester. However months on it can still be seen all around Manchester, and doesn't show how original Manchester could, and should be.

So, the designers at Creative Lynx thought it would be good to get some discussion going about what could be proposed
to the council instead. Last week, Me, Bekki and Lisa worked on a number of solutions, which were then shown in
the exhibition!
