_Illustration & Animation
We proposed this ‘heritage’ route focussing on hand drawn and hand rendered imagery. We wanted to move it all away from the usual fast pacey graphics that car racing is associated with.
This was a retrospective and a series about legends. The textures and soft palettes were key to the look of these graphics.
Our initial work involved sketching the drivers and building montages. Once we had established this look the titles and archive sequences grew from here. All the graphics were layered photography combined with images hand drawn here at Mighty Giant. With clever camera moves, and some added bits of debris and artefacts we built the sequences into slow motion sections of a race.
