The New York Times – Modern Love

10

The New York Times column ‘Modern Love’ is a fascinating look into the magnificent highs and sad lows of love. The stories and their honesty are very compelling and because love is a universal thing, everyone can connect with each author. The columns go side-to-side with animations. The most recent is called ‘Beyond Years’ and deals with a 22-year age difference in a love relationship.

The animation has been made by Brooklyn-based creative Freddy Arenas whose modest style blends the images and the words perfectly together.
