The wait is over! The 2018 World Cup is finally here. And to honor this momentous sporting event, Gentleman Scholar crafted an animated tribute, celebrating a handful of different players and their nations.
Using the ball to transition us from scene to scene, our talented team of designers, animators and art directors wanted to play off the diverse nature of the tournament by cycling through different styles and techniques to tell a simple but charming story. We dedicate this piece not just to the event itself, but also to the unifying nature of this sport in general. A perfect reminder that we are one world brought together to witness the spectacle of first-class soccer playing.
Play hard, play fair and may the best team win!
