Capt Scott

Typographic editorial
Overview
This project received a prestigious commendation by the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD).

It's based on the expedition involving Captain Scott and his men as they attempted to reach the South Pole, and the brave way in which they met their death on the return journey home.
The story is told over three books in the same format as the artist notebooks which Scott used to document each day of their arduous journey, using the selected journal entries contrasted against modern day scientific detail.

The typography and structure are manipulated as the main tool to create drama and reflect Scotts emotions – a contrast to the ‘stiff upper lip’ Victorian manner the journal was written in.
