Concept 1: Traditional Valentine

Our first concept is a very traditional, very romanticized Valentine's Day theme–think reds and pinks, hearts and arrows, and a warm, fuzzy feeling. For this concept, you can draw inspiration from classic Valentine's Day visuals, keeping the focus on a celebration of love.


For the messaging and copy in this concept, don’t shy away from cheesy, punny language. Keep things light-hearted and cute with some of our top Valentine’s Day quotes.
