what do these words mean to you? I've been given an assignment at college to come up with an aesthetic design (for a tshirt) incorporating the two words/meanings. I can use anything eg text, pictures illustrations, but I just don't know what to do.. I get the idea of urban being very messy/scruffy text etc, and romantic is soft, curvy, pretty... but I just don't know how to mix the two together! any ideas? thanks, Lou x

When I think of urban, the first picture that pops into my mind is industrial and/or decaying architecture. Maybe an urban romantic image would be a graffiti valentine spraypainted on a crumbling brick wall.

Or maybe something to do with hiphop style, like a tatoo of some girl's name.

To me it means seeing beauty despite the surroundings, although I'm not so sure if that makes sense.  It'd be like walking through an area with a bad reputation but seeing an old couple holding hands while you're there.
Although maybe this picture would help explain more http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v40/junesongcole/010105005.jpg
Hope this wasn't too late and at least helpful!

The Romantics of the 18th century hated cities, industry, and everything urban, right? They thought city life led to corruption and children should be sent to remote rural homes where their natural innocence could be preserved. Right?

I think of a juxtaposition of the industrial revolution and untouched wilderness. Like factories and flowers, or sweatshops and woodland creatures.
