Bringing light to the tragedy that coal mining has caused on communities throughout the decades.

The typeface to featured harsh straight lines, resembling the form of coal, as if its been chipped out of the wall. The typeface is condensed, giving a similar feel to the coal train carriages. I made multiple versions of the type for display and copy purposes, including a stencil version.
The motion videos were an interpretation of the coal mining industry. My take on this was to bring the coal mining industry home by talking about a subject that was local, then raise awareness on a larger scale.
