I was commissioned to create the Polar Bear and hand lettering for  an upcoming DavidKnight Theatre Production ’66 Degrees North’.

66 Degrees North is the story of a girl who tries to rescue a lost polar bear from the arctic community, inspired by Shackleton and her own sense of bravery. A children’s show around the themes of global warming and ecology.

The main characters are a girl and a polar bear – the girl is gentle and a little sad but has made friends with the arctic animals and loves dancing and music.

I was asked to turn around the artwork + typography within 24 hours.
