Project: Resenärerna - The Voyagers
Client: Sjöhistoriska museet - The Maritime Museum, Stockholm
Throughout the XVIIIth century men and women joined the Swedish East India Company to undertake the long and perilous voyage from Europe to China in the dream of fortune through trade. They experienced exotic climates, encountered new people and came into contact with foreign cultures. It was a long and dangerous journey, and not all the voyagers made it home.
Testimonials, drawings and letters written by some of the voyagers are used to help the visitor imagine life on board the ships.
Expology created the graphic design, provided guidelines for text, researched and edited images, produced print originals as well as designed interactive stations.
