Cape Rock produces 'Game of Thrones' campaign

Lambie-Nairn develops brand identity for Invictus Games

The Dutch Branding & Design Agency Cape Rock recently produced a campaign for the 4th season of Game of Thrones. In the Netherlands, the new episodes start airing on 7 April 2014 on HBO.

The task was to create a campaign for the 4th season that excited fans and made viewers curious about the show. They also had to convey the range and richness of this series about seven kingdoms in just 30 seconds. Therefore, Cape Rock built the campaign around three key elements: all men must die, women rule the world, and dragons are cool. The spots also place a particular focus on the two Dutch actors in the series, Michiel Huisman and Carice van Houten. The music and audio elements selected emphasize the exciting and promising character of the campaign.

The international branding agency Lambie-Nairn has designed the brand identity for The Invictus Games. The new sporting event for wounded, injured and invalid servicemen and women was launched by HRH Prince Harry and will take place in September 2014 in London. Lambie-Nairn worked in collaboration with the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, and the Ministry of Defence.

The name Invictus Games is based on the famous poem by William Ernest Henley:

"…I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul"

Invictus is Latin for 'unconquered' and the logotype for the 'Invictus Games' captures and emphasizes this belief in the human spirit. The typography turns the idea of invincibility into a clear intention. In addition, Lambie-Nairn managed to include the personal touch of each competing athlete – in a simple but impressive manner: From the letters in "Invictus Games", "I" and "AM" are highlighted and emphasized. These stand as a symbol for each participant – according to the motto "I am invincible".

Christian Schroeder, CEO of Lambie-Nairn, added: "We're very proud to have worked with the Royal Foundation and Ministry of Defence in helping to develop the Invictus Games brand. This is an inspiring event that recognises the courage of these athletes and demonstrates how powerful sport can be."
