Information


Our brief, ‘The Significance of Numbers’, was assigned by the International Society of Typographic Designers (I.S.T.D.). In my project, I decided to focus on a universally significant number; the height of the world’s tallest man. This work typographically communicates the significance of Robert Wadlow and his exceptional 22-year growth story.

My intention was to create a work that would allow my audience to interact with Robert Wadlow’s significant height. It is intended to hang on a wall, allowing my audience to stand next to it and compare their height to his.
