Finalists in 2004 for 'illustration and graphic techniques' in the Epica awards, SCP created this campaign for the Göteborg Symphonic Orchestra. Illustrated by Eva Lilja.
Another 2004 Epica nominee worth mentioning in this context is DDB Paris "Mohammed Ali" for L'EQUIPE. I can't tell if the text spelling our Alis face here is from "when we were Kings" or what is going on here really though. Still. Same-ish.
Know of any others?
