I started this weekly exercise because I needed to find a way to learn more verbs in German. I wanted to find a way to merge my passion for typography and languages while learning by memory without trying too hard.
This project explores how image association can aid learning by memory. The process is based on studying the meaning of the verb and then making a typographical illustration. By doing I attempt to recall verbs with the images drawn.
