Ajuntament de Barcelona
Advertising / Graphic Campaign
I had the pleasure to create the illustrations and animations for Barcelona’s Sant Jordi campaign (Saint George’s Day), one of the most festive days of the year in Catalunya.
Each April 23th, people give away roses and books to their loved ones.
The illustrations are a celebration of this tradition, an explosion of joy, specially because after two years the festivity goes back to «normality» again.
The poster also has an animated version. Some iconic items from Sant Jordi emerge from the initial explosion: roses, books, a dragon’s tail…
We selected 3 different moments of the animation and used them as static illustrations in order to accompany the main poster and give variety to the campaign.
Illustration & animation: Josep Prat Sorolla
