BBC European Championships

 

The prestigious European Championships land in Glasgow and Berlin August 2nd. To mark the occasion, BBC Creative asked us to design and produce a stirring celebratory promo. Taking inspiration from vintage travel posters, we concocted an epic ode to iconic European landscapes and the athletes they have produced.

The promo tracks an epic relay from Olympiastadion Berlin, all the way to the Hydro Arena in Glasgow.

The vintage travel poster art of Tom Purvis and Leo Marfurt were our main inspiration.
