Big Brother II

Identity and promotional materials for the second series of Big Brother. The design uses optical tricks to reflect the voyeuristic nature of the show: While the eye represents the voyeur, the horizontal lines become a visual barrier creating an Orwellian sense of concealment.

Advertising & editorial promotion

The visuals used across the marketing were intended to be the antithesis of the highly polished aesthetic of typical editorials and advertising. Instead the viewer was hit with a stark, almost uncomfortable visual image, intended to contrast abruptly with any surrounding visual media. The addition of short statements empower the viewer to take control of the outcome of the show.
