I was commissioned by Infected Post (Hamburg) to create the key visuals, motion graphics and final logo animation for the ZDF 2014 World Cup trailer. The main aim of the trailer was to create a striking visual identity to reflect the feeling and atmosphere of Brazil and Rio de Janeiro. To represent the many different people joining together for the tournament, the idea was to use the technique of poinitllism to show the many different impressions made from the coloured footballs joining together to create one big picture of the World Cup.
