Design a book about how not to die during a Scandinavian winter for those who have never experienced one before.


Using dark humour and strong visual language, HOW NOT TO F*CKING DIE DURING A SCANDI WINTER is a survival kit for a first timer encountering the brutal Scandi winter. The book was intended to be funny but also informative, using appropriate info-graphics, imagery

and illustrations.


The visual language is limited to two colors and typefaces, being consistent with a strong in-your-face feeling. The illustrations are simple, with details made of lines in the same stroke creating depth and interest with highlighting creases and folds within clothing and hair.
