ChangePlan Ltd calculated the distortion affects produced by placing straight lettering onto the curved surfaces of the Millennium dome, London. We then applied distortions to the original artwork for the London 2012 Olympic bid. The banner was made up of 16 panels (24m high x 4.5m wide) printed by Macro Art. When the panels were joined, the resulting banner followed the curvature of the Millennium dome, London, so that when a banner was anchored 1m above the surface. The lettering and graphics would appear straight when viewed from above, as the members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), flew in and out of London.
Dazzle graphics for HMS President
ChangePlan Ltd was asked by Global Erecting Sign Services Ltd (GESS Ltd) and PressOn Ltd to distort graphics to enable them to apply pre-printed panels to a ships hull. As part of 14-18 NOW, the official cultural programme to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. the sponsors wanted to wrap the ship HMS President, sited on the Thames at Victoria embankment, in Dazzle Graphics. We worked closely with all parties to ensure the tight deadlines were achieved. We had to manipulate hi-res digital graphics, supplied by the artist Tobias Rehberger in digital format, to enable vinyl panels to be printed of a size that could be manhandled from a boat and fitted safely. The imagery had to follow the contours of the hull but appear straight and true when viewed, and also had to line up with additional graphics above the hull. A stunning video of this process made by David Kew is on YouTube. The ship is now berthed by Victoria Embankment on the Thames until February 2015.
