Courage to Act: Rescue in Denmark

Courage to Act: Rescue in Denmark at the Museum of Jewish Heritage is an all-ages exhibition about the experience of Danish Jews during the Holocaust. The exhibition walks visitors through several stories, including the story of Gerda III, a boat used to rescue and transport approximately 300 Jews from Denmark to Sweden.

While interning in the Visual Experience Design department at Local Projects, I helped with the project’s final design phase. Working with my supervisor Olivia Crosby, I refined the exhibition’s typographic hierarchy and created dozens of final elevation schematics that were distributed to a the exhibition’s illustrator.
