Ruth Ewan

Ice Cream (Sean)

In April 2011, Ruth Ewan worked with young people at Broughton High School, Edinburgh to create a new font. Each member of the class drew a letter onto a rubber and the resulting designs were then cut into maple woodblocks. Ewan then used the woodblock type to create a series of three prints.

Pupils in the class were asked to imagine newspaper headlines they might expect to see in the year 2030. The resulting phrases varied from the hopeful to the surreal and included this somewhat gloomy phrase, imagined with the issue of global warming in mind.
