As Gertrude Stein once said,

“A rose is a rose is a rose.”

Let the rose inspire your web design creations.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not

The cover art for the French romantic-thriller, He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not, uses the rose as a design element. The side borders contain red roses. Also, at the bottom half of the composition, a rose petal heart teases the eye. Red roses symbolize love and give a clue to the film’s theme. Furthermore, notice how the rose nicely juxtaposes the human elements of the actors’ faces?

Love in the Time of Cholera

The cover art for, Love in the Time of Cholera, uses a similar rose theme. A huge rose dominates the top half of the cover, while, at the bottom of the design, an over-sized rose petal hides parts of a female body. The roses provoke and add a playful touch to the overall composition.

La Vie En Rose

The CD cover of Edith Piaf’s, La Vie En Rose, uses colorized roses on an otherwise black and white design. The roses add a pop of color and contrast the portrait of Edith Piaf. In addition, the roses add an antique, timeless feel to the cover.

Can you creatively use the rose as a source for web design inspiration? The rose brings romance, love, connection and inspiration to any composition. Use the rose to inspire your blog or website.

PS – Happy Valentines Day!
