Christopher Guinness created this little animated 3D commercial to get people psyched about the World Cup. It was a shame to see the U.S. go home today after such a tough game with Ghana but I hope Americans stay interested in the sport. Being married to a Brazilian, I have no choice but to watch World Cup but over the last 10 years I have become quite a fan and really look forward to when the time comes around every 4 years.
Next go round I am planning on making my way to Brazil to see the game with my family in tow. Hopefully I will see some Americans there supporting the world’s game or ‘proper football’ as the English sometimes put it.
Bison represents the work of Linsey Levendall and Daniel Orme who together form a creative studio based in Cape Town, South Africa. They have some highly illustrative, and at the other end of the scale strikingly minimal design and illustration work in their collective portfolio. All in all, it makes for a notable body of work.
