New University Of Portsmouth Perimeter Boards Debut Tonight At Fratton Park
Tonight, Portsmouth Football Club are due to take on AFC Wimbledon at Fratton Park and if you're attending the match, you may spot some new graphics to reinforce the club's new partnership with the university.
As part of my growing job role here at the University, I was tasked to create something that gave a great brand presence while matches are taking place at Fratton Park. So, I took to After Effects to create my first ever perimeter board branded message.
I've worked with Big Screens that work in a 16:9 format and 4:3 aspect ratio, but never screens that run along the edge of a football stadium. This was a challenge.
I produced an animated graphic which can be seen in full above. This graphic was then reproduce by duplicating it within a 16:9 aspect ratio at certain position points in one 16:9 aspect ratio video. The video is presented to the club and the photo below shows what the final product looks like. It's really strange but it works a treat.
Stay tuned for more news and updates about my work at The University of Portsmouth.
