Leicester Castle Classic 2014



The Leicester Castle Classic is an 80km race over in a 4.1km route that includes a section on cobbles in Leicester Castle the mile straight along Western Boulevard and Leicester City FC`s King Power stadium.
As of 2014 the race is now part of National Elite Road Series and is the penultimate race of the season.
My film starts at Race HQ as Team Raleigh and others prepare before joining the race as it enters the cobbled section in Leicester castle though the Turret Gateway and later along the mile straight where we see race winner Jon Mould cross the finish line and on the podium.

GCR - Commercial Vehicle Day & Layland Society Meet

Poster Designed for the Great Central Railway Commercial Vehicle Day & Layland Society Annual Meet the poster features two Layland buses drawn by myself in thier well known colours. The number plates of the vehicles contain a Easter egg, LM1907 being the date Layland Motors was founded and GCR1894 the date the railway was founded, the destination boards are also set to Quorn & Woodhouse (the events location).
The poster also borrows the style of the chrome Art Deco(esq) decorations often seen on the layland buses.
The main typeface (onyx) is one that mirrors that seen in the Layland logo, whilst Maven Pro is used for the smaller supplementary info for ease of reading.
