John McFaul was on hand at Liverpool John Lennon Airport today to unveil a project which has been 9 months in the making for him and his crack team of designers. John had kindly invited us here at TC along to the bash, since we’re still based in his old neck of the woods, and we were more than happy to take him up on his offer.
We were expecting a few billboards, maybe a bit of motion graphics, but what we encountered instead was almost a total re-styling of a large proportion of the airport building. So as passengers wobble off their flights they’ll be treated to a ride on one of six different coloured buses, wrapped in McFaul graphics. During our quick excursion on one of the said vehicles, we passed a queue of unsuspecting holiday-makers… content in the knowledge that we weren’t in their queue, and we were on a damn-cool looking bus!
John McFaul preaching to the crowds… and his bus
That was but the tip of the iceberg though. After getting off their bus, passengers will walk past a custom made video wall with further McFaul graphics before encountering the main attraction… a 300m long glazed walkway featured one continuous piece of McFaul artwork. That’s a bloody long image! Hats off to the guys as well, because it’s an amazing feat, both artistically and technically. And it should definitely entertain the masses as they’re stood in their queue, wondering who all the random people with visitor passes are.
The beast itself… the giant walkway
The only thing missing… a McFaul stamp for my passport. Maybe you only get that if you’re a frequent flyer!
