To amplify Wimbledon’s recent filmic trailer ‘The Story Continues’, McCann London has created three posters for the 2019 Championship under the title ‘Some Stories Live Forever’. The posters are packed full of craft and attention to detail – to excite existing fans and inspire a new generation through the unique Wimbledon story.
Each poster features tennis greats - Althea Gibson, Arthur Ashe & Martina Navratilova – who are cleverly merged with historical news stories, each blending era-defining moments of human endeavour. An innovative hybrid of craft, that merged photography to create unique visuals, complimented by typography, hand letter-pressed in the traditional way, to be true and authentic to each historical period featured within the posters.
