The Dynamite Project

The Dynamite Project was a collaboration with a local artist, funded by The Scottish Arts Council and North Ayrshire Council.

The project focused on Alfred Nobel’s connections with the Dynamite Factories 
of North Ayrshire. Local school children embarked upon a research project to visit people and places in the area that had a connection with the Nobel prize categories: Physics, Chemistry, Medicine and Physiology, Literature and Peace. 
The research collected was documented in a book, DVD and a series of creative
and educational workshops.

We created the book as part of the showcase. Using typography and illustration
to capture the essence of the project and the people involved, we also wanted the book to have the appearance of a school exercise book, using uncoated paper stocks throughout to give the book a beautifully crafted finish.
