The Approach

To promote the INEOS brand through beautiful engaging graphics which could be used across digital media, print media, merchandise and across the course in Vienna where Eliud Kipchoge attempted his impossible feat to break the sub-two-hour-marathon barrier. Through clever design to both differentiate and bring together different elements of the campaign raise the profile of INEOS in the hearts and minds of people across the globe.
