The Heart Index is a not-for-profit design compendium, raising money and awareness for Heart Research UK. It's pages showcase a collection of hearts, designed and interpreted by a host of contemporary practitioners, including Adrian Shaughnessy, Spin, Studio Makgill and Wim Crouwel. Designed by Craig Atkinson and Grace Bond.
The heart is essential to life, vital to our wellbeing and responsible for our survival. It’s for these reasons that we associate hearts with our deepest and sincerest emotions. Such significance has immortalised the heart in the form of a symbol of it’s own. Representations of the heart come in countless different forms and have different significance to each and every one of us.
