Brands and logos are a source of imagery that people happen upon almost every moment of the day, yet most have as little appreciation for them as they do for other mundane events; nevertheless, the To Have & To Hold series encourages people to forget for a moment the underlying marketing tactics used to create such images. It is a nostalgic reflection on past designs that harked back to a more innocent design era.

Designer Tim Sumner writes about the To Have & To Hold series, "An era of the logo type rather than the brand, the filo fax as opposed to the mobile, the fax machine instead of the internet and a time when the word virtual had not yet become a reality." The free giveaways range from the early '70s to the late '80s.
