Patrick Alasović Self-DefenseIdentity for Frankfurt-based female self-defense trainer Patrick Alasovic. After thinking about how to come up with a design, that is not as brutal or aggressive as most solutions in that field, his identity draws on a comic-like aesthetic. Humorous illustrations are combined with a simple typography to loosen up the heaviness of the topic.
