Description: We needed a title page for the portfolios and thought it would be nice to also include the trident and the heart which both show up on various posters throughout the set.
Hinting at the arrows, which is a fairly common visual element used in the 23 posters and substituting them for the As, provided a hint to the typographic play which is evident in many of the posters.
