We Made Four Animated Videos About Arsenal, Barcelona, Juventus, and Liverpool


Gatorade asked us to help tell stories about four of Europe’s most interesting clubs

It’s pretty rare that a project this fun comes our way, but when Gatorade told us they wanted our help to make something that examined the identities of four of Europe’s biggest clubs, we jumped at the chance to bring the art from the mag and make it move around the screen. With help from some of our favorite illustrators, including Peter Diamond (who made our Leo Messi and Tim Howard covers), plus club experts like former Liverpool defender Gary Gillespie and Arseblog founder Andrew Mangan, we worked with an animation studio, music house, and sound designer to give the stories some life. Check out the results below.
