Taking over the Tate Modern with Nike Running.
We’ve long been involved with Nike’s running initiatives, from the development of Run Dem Crew’s brand identity to Runhai - making us the natural choice when they wanted to introduce a new generation of Londoners to the sport. We were asked to develop and design a series of events that would encourage young runners across the city to form their own crews, culminating in London’s Fastest Night, a street race (and afterparty) hosted at the Tate Modern.
Working in such an imposing space necessitated design that could inspire on a grand scale – which is why we opted to use projection mapping and bold visuals that could hold their own against Tate Modern’s iconic Turbine Hall. Speed was emphasized in all aspects of our concept, with fast-paced and rapidly-shifting animations playing a significant role in defining the feel of the event.
In advance of London’s Fastest Night, we developed the visual identity for 3 anticipation-building running events across the capital, including sessions with grime legend JME, TrackMafia, and Nike athletes.
