The official ‘I ♥ NY’ logo complete with registered trademark.

Font

The font is ‘American Typewriter’ a slab (thick) serif font.  Though it’s typewriter-like, the font is proportional not monospaced.  Color: Black, obviously.

If the font looks familiar, perhaps that’s because it’s used in the credits for the US version of ‘The Office’ and ‘Young Sheldon’ TV shows.

Heart Symbol

The heart symbol is a traditional heart icon with a single color (no shadings or 3D effects).

The red is RGB: 238, 39, 34 or HEX: #ee2722

Positioning

The letter ‘I’ and heart symbol should be the same height.

All text is the same font and size (i.e. both lines should be the same height)

The top line is narrower than the bottom line or the same width

With the basics in place, we’ll show how to make your own versions of the I Love … logo in Word or Powerpoint:
