About Spread Love Project

Spread Love Project is a global initiative started in 2016 to serve as an iconic reminder for people everywhere to spread love without restriction, reason or reward. We believe spreading love today is more important than ever, so we’ve made it our mission.

The Spread Love heart was created by New York based artist and designer, Nicholas Konert in 2016 as a symbol for spreading love. Thanks to friends and businesses — it has appeared internationally and continues to pop up in unexpected places around the world.
