Spread Love Project is a global initiative started in 2016 to serve as an iconic, contagious 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 heart icon was created by New York based artist and designer, Nicholas Konert in response to the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando on June 20th, 2016. Thanks to friends and businesses — it has since appeared internationally on streets, shops, restaurants and many other unexpected places.

let’s collaborate

We are interested in collaborating with others to spread this symbol of love. If you are a business, individual or organization and would like to partner or reinterpret what this symbol could mean in our socio-political climate, let’s talk.
