How to use the LOVE YOUR EYES heart icon.

We encourage you to use the LOVE YOUR EYES heart icon on images that celebrate your work and share them on social media. The icon can be placed within an image as shown below. When adopting this approach, please ensure:

  • There is sufficient space within the background of the image to fit the icon comfortably.
  • The background is not so complex that the icon becomes obscured.
  • The peak of the heart and at least one complete side of the heart can be seen when imagery is placed in front of the icon.
  • Always remember to tag IAPB in your posts!

Download the Love Your Eyes symbol

You can also find the Love Your Eyes symbol as a STICKER in Instagram. Search for ‘Love Your Eyes’ and add the animated GIF to your stories and reels.
