Here's a very personal project coming from our talented design intern Joanna Lobel. Incredibly insightful, here's her take on entering the age of technology and romance.
"These posters are imagined as covers for a book written about how social media affects our sex, love and fantasy lives—the good, the bad, and the ugly. We are the social media generation, and these are our stories. I had my first boyfriend when I was 14 and when it ended I was suddenly thrown into the dating world. One that I had never seen before, filled with texting, profiles, pictures and online dating. I found that I could enter the dating world through the safety of my computer screen. I have some horrible stories from that first year, stalkers who got my number and wouldn't stop calling, some photos sent that I will never un-see, and too many coffee dates. It ended with a new relationship and although the story is still being written I can look back on my experiences in the technologically 'advanced' dating world and laugh a little. I'm not the only person going through this."
