For a class I took of which I do not know the name, we got to pick our assignment- basically take something not made-up, and do 5 illustrations about it. Since I'm on the internet all the time I read a lot of articles and lists about interesting things, and one that I came across was online dating. No, not match.com, but something a tad more interesting. I can't really vouch for the legitimacy of any of these websites but I can for sure say it is funny as hell that they even exist. I give you: strange online dating. I picked some of the ones I found most amusing and made some stuffed thingies, which I then turned into sort of ads or posters.

This is my final project for my Hand-lettering course- we could do basically whatever we wanted (preferably something involving a brand) as long as we did the text by hand. I had absolutely no idea what to do since the assignment was incredibly vague so I spent a good deal of the semester flailing around, mentally, until my time was dwindling to the last months and I settled on Forever 21, the store where I spend all of my money. I designed some tags for their different clothing lines and a new bag design. It doesn't seem like much work for one semester...we only had 3 minor assignments, but I guess in Germany that's how they roll.
