How do you confess love, or at least momentary affection, if all you read is chemistry and math textbooks? Well, as a Boston-based illustrator Nicole Martinez and her Nerdy Dirty postcard series proves, love also speaks the dialect of science.

Nicole picked up an increasingly popular word-game trend, and turned some nerdy phrases into lovey-dovey or even somewhat dirty lines. In combination with the minimalistic lab-inspired designs, the postcards turned out to be both witty and very cute at the same time. So if you’re a Big-Bang-Theory type of seducer, you may want to order some of these lovely postcards on Etsy.
