Valentines Day is fast approaching, and although it’s a long-lingering cliché attached to the holiday, it seems all too true that it’s the greeting card industry trying to get a hand in your pocket by telling you it might well result with one in your pants.
So why not do something different and consider one from the ‘Me+You’ series that we had Sardinian-born designer Barbara Pala illustrate?
Featuring iconic, stylish, and inexplicable couples; from the destructive combination of Kurt Cobain & Courtney Love, to the suspiciously close ‘friendship’ of Bert & Ernie, there’s a card that’s perfect for whoever might have your heart.
Barbara Pala is a Sardinian-born artist, fashion designer, and (it's rumored) robot. Barbara’s ideal method of work is freelance collaborations, having collaborated with many companies, including most recently with O-Nami Product Design for Sisley Home. She divides her time between Sardinia and Milan, Italy.

What's on your mind?
lovley designs, i like it!
So these are very cool, how would I actually get one?
These are just digital, but maybe we’ll run off a print run for some loyal readers and friends next year? Who knows? We’re already looking at new couples; Sid & Nancy, JFK & Jackie…
Leah? Seriously? It’s Leia, dude.
I know, right? How embarrassed were we.
haha yeah we know….but apparently our graphic design editor doesn’t…he’s an image man, unfortunately not a word one.
These are beyond fantastic!
I can only see one of them. Where the hell is the rest of the series?
Kurt and Cortney is my favorite one! Very nice watercolors<3
I can only see the one of Hef and his Bunnies
