|The box set|
Ruth Rowland works on the lettering for the limited edition Fourth Doctor Time Capsule for the BBC.
This luxury product aimed at the dedicated fan, celebrates Tom Baker and the 50th Anniversary of the Dr Who TV series, with a limited run of 5,000. Ruth Says "The box itself is designed to look like a Gallifreyan artefact and with this in mind, I was asked to create both English and Gallifreyan lettering for the DVD covers. This involved some very enjoyable research, looking at stills from old Doctor Who episodes and discussing the appropriate feel and layout of the two different alphabets with the art director. Once printed the title had the added bonus of only being legible once seen through the coloured disc provided." (Watch the video). The box set is 'lovingly put together' and full of Tom Baker goodies.
