Task

The Olympic Channel initiated a development of unique series - Anatomy of, which examine the physiques and unique body characteristics of Olympic athletes to reveal what makes them special.

We were invited to work on visual style for the S01 of the Anatomy of series. After a successfull S01 we continued to work with the Olympic Channel's and IMG teams and produced motion graphics for S02 and S03.

Challenge

While working closely with programme directors we received a large number of athlete test data points to work with. The greatest challenge for us was to process the test data, and by simplyfing it choose what information should be seen on-screen.
