Award-winning illustrator and graphic designer Thomas Fuchs will be exhibiting designs from several of his collections at the Licensing International Expo 2011 June 14-16 in Las Vegas, with an emphasis on a series of graphic heart-based images called "Love&Hate."
Fuchs, whose work has appeared in many newspapers and magazines in the U.S. and abroad and has received numerous awards for his illustrations, has created designs for a wide range of clients. He is currently designing a card line for NobleWorks and has created mousepad designs for Champtech S.L.
Love&Hate comprises over 300 heart-based images grouped into more than 25 collections. Sometimes sinister, sometimes sweet, each heart image is thought provoking and deep, a truly unique and innovative idea and design.
"We want to create a strong brand with this collection," says Adrianne Bottrell, licensing director for Thomas Fuchs Studio. "We believe it has the potential to appeal to a wide audience of young, hip consumers as the images are instantly catchy and work well in many product categories."
Images within the series are currently being licensed to Korean manufacturer Sticon for a line of t-shirts and hoodies, Neatorama for a line of adult and infant shirts, Dezign With A Z for wall decals and Trickstreet for an apparel and accessories line for men, women and children.
"We'd like to move further into apparel, accessories, stationery, sporting goods, toys, IT and home furnishing with this collection," says Bottrell.
