FUTURE LIONS - AKQA
No Ghost partnered with AKQA to design an awards ceremony for the next generation of big thinkers.
1,900 entries from 69 countries around the world. Now in its 12th year, Future Lions is AKQA's annual student competition in collaboration with Google and Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
Taking the key artwork from the film, huge posters were printed and provided to all participating institutions in order to discover this year's 2100 entrants. This same imagery supports all the promotional artwork for Future Lions 2017.
Custom designed every year, No Ghost was set the challenge of creating a trophy for the winners. Taking inspiration from the film we created a completely unique award, all copies of which were presented to the prize winners. The trophies were printed with a premium finish using one of the best SLS 3D printers available.
Representing infinity is no easy task. It was down to us to visualise different ways of showing the unknown. From fractal mandelbulbs to custom scripted recursion loops, intricate hand animation to procedural geometry deformers, we tried as many different combinations of techniques as possible to nail down the look.
