The Bad Times

The Bad Times is a graphic novel set during the Irish Famine, a disaster precipitated by the failure of the potato crop, but exacerbated by the inadequate policies of the British government and the cruelty and opportunism of some landowners and merchants.

Our brief was to create an identity system for this initial book with the goal of using the identity system their series of other graphic novels relating to this story.
