Ultimate Player

Not sure if this project classes itself as fun or one to drive the team mad!

Ultimate Player was a strand that ran for a season on Premier League during half time of live matches on the Premier League Content Service.

The idea was players and managers would be interviewed and they would reveal their top players in certain areas. Such as “Best Left Foot”, “Best Captain” and so on.

To reveal the players on screen, we developed a cartoon approach. Simplifying each players image then dissolving through to their actual image before seeing examples of them in action.

This graphical approach was a huge success but involved far too many hours of drawing in different coloured layers to build up the cartoon look.
