What’s Love Got to Do With It?

In school, we were each given an online article and tasked with designing an accompanying spread.

My piece was about challenging the idealized concept of true love and how dating in the 21st century has more in common with traditional arranged marriages than we might think.

Modern love in the digital era isn’t necessarily about romance — in fact, it’s more strategic. Taking that cue, I used common games as visual elements.


We had to provide a stat that related to our article, so I chose the countries with the highest divorce rates and arranged them into a crossword puzzle.

After completing the publication design, I turned the article’s content and elements into a short animated video.
