The Premier League is the organising body of the Barclays Premier League with responsibility for the competition, its Rule Book and the centralised broadcast and other commercial rights.
They recently launched a new 24/7 high definition content service for its licensees out side the UK and Ireland broadcasting to 211 territories with a global reach of over 500 million.
Having won the contract to design and build the set Eye Catching Design approached us to create the graphic backings. We chose to reflect the rich history of the competion by highlighting the many and varied personalities that had taken part. Rather than featuring arbitrary football action we wanted to create a wall of ‘Galacticos’.
The montage itself was created using Photoshop CS6 which has the advantage of being able to handle extremely large images through it’s PSB format.
Eye Catching Design and The Premiere League were delighted with the results and the first live broadcast took place in September of this year. We are now working with ECD on a number of other production design projects.
