Launch of the new Corsa – Work from the archive

Back in 2006, whilst based at PCI Fitch as Head of the Web team, we worked on amongst other things, a large animation for the main screen on the Vauxhall stand, which sat behind a half-pipe. The animation was several thousand pixels wide and played on a screen around 11m wide.

Gathering design and creative input from our surround environment and internet research, we crafted a completely new alphabet for the Corsa launch, used in this animation.

This approach was such a resounding success that it was adopted unilaterally by Vauxhall on other Corsa release material creative work.

Below are some images from the motorshow in London, showing all the different eleemnts the new font was used within as well as the main event, which was the half pipe.

    1. My site is hosted on WordPress, with images being hosted either on WordPress as well or on social media sites like Flickr. For video, I have been using YouTube but tend to prefer Vimeo as the quality is higher.

      That said, when you embed a Vimeo video into a WordPress blog, there is a slight delay in the call up time as opposed to YouTube. Hope that helps.

  16. I like the valuable information you provide in your articles.
    I’ll bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently. I’m quite sure I’ll learn lots of new stuff right here! Best of luck for the next!

  21. I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what you’ve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    You’ve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  22. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself?

    Anyway keep up the nice quality writing.
