Regeneration

Brief
Design the identity for a one-woman play by Nancy Rappaport.

Solution
Nancy Rappaport survived breast cancer. Her experience led her to reflect on life, death and her illness in a most poignant way. She collected these reflections in her play, Regeneration.

I created the identity around two principles:
1. Interpret typographically what it means to “regenerate”,
2. Visualize the emotional struggle of recovering from cancer.

The identity uses 11 typefaces that begin with a thin stencil typeface (boney and broken) and regenerates into a strongly present, bold weight.
