An early concept for the Natural Born Goalscorers infographics for our adidas client – always nice to see where things start out and where we eventually took them. This initial concept looked at a draggable interactive boot with hot-spots…View full post (and comment)
We were just digging through some old work and found this nice little infographic we created for Adidas. We were asked to trace Andy Murray’s match stats through each Wimbledon round, creating infographics for each game that visualised Murray’s match through the his winning shots. The data revealed Andy’s tactics, as well as what was working and how he adapted his game against each opponent.View full post (and comment)

Our latest series of infographics for Adidas Football displays player data (supplied by OPTA) visualised against an action image of each forward. Of the top ten strikers in the English Premier League, Adidas sponsor seven of them… that’s a lot of goals scored in Adidas boots.View full post (and comment)
The only two players in the whole of Europe to have scored 6 goals this season from outside the box. Two players at the peak of their game and having incredible seasons. To celebrate this, adidas asked us to create a graphic that showed the two players going head-2-head and displaying the adidas boots they score their goals in.View full post (and comment)
While gathering some project examples for a potential (and awesome) new client, we found this gem from a year or so back… the Pro Playbook we created for Eloqua – some great illustrations by the always awesome Stanley Chow.View full post (and comment)

We are working on several projects at the moment here at Knight Sudios where we are using Mapbox to create customised maps. Using OpenStreetMap data, the intuitive Mapbox interface allows us to really fine tune our designs to create the perfect unique map for each client. The map above is a perfect example, using the Mapbox terrain layer allows us to create a map that really enhances a satellite view by adding highlights and depth to the mountainous areas of the map, as well as an on-brand colour palette.View full post (and comment)
A fun iPad app for Skullcandy that allowed the user to experience the amazing (and unexpected!) sound of the Crusher headphone – the app then captured a video of the user’s (surprised) reaction to hearing the sound and emailed it to them. Cool.View full post (and comment)
We have been working with our good friends at Emanate to create a cool infographic for their clients Philips – it’s an internal company graphic, so only a sneak peek on this one I’m afraid… it’s looking sweet though!View full post (and comment)

Our awesome new site for The North Face is now live – go to the URL below and check it out now!
Our good friends at Emanate PR approached us to create an infographic for their new clients, Southern Rail. Travel as a subject matter is always fun when creating these types of data visualisation, the track in this case provided us with a perfect visual narrative thread to lead the viewer through the information.
The London landscape and our rich railway history also allowed us to flex our illustrative chops with this gritty and textured aesthetic while the user discovered the data on their journey through each station.View full post (and comment)
We have been tirelessly working on some amazing projects for adidas Rugby and the British & Irish Lions ahead of their tour down under next year. As part of the wider campaign, we have created an online form for customers that are purchasing the new shirt through the Lions’ store, to win some great rugby prizes. A simple three-step form contained within a slick lightbox design is presented to the customer within their purchasing journey.View full post (and comment)
Our latest Facebook app for Skullcandy has gone live today. ‘Come On!’, as Pelle would say…
As a first installment of Skullcandy’s new ‘Backstage with…’ series, the app follow’s the band on their European tour, giving the user’s backstage access to The Hives and exclusive gifts and content.
This is only the pre-tour teaser video version. The full version goes live next week…
You’ve gotta love this time of year and you’ve gotta love these kinds of projects! Our great friends at adidas asked us to create some fun images that mixed their brand with halloween and bonfire night… challenge accepted!
We had so much fun creating these images – the Spooky Forrest, Firework Trefoil and Werewolf Runner, all shown above, were among our favourites of this years bunch. All images were posted on adidas UK’s social channels in the event run up.View full post (and comment)
We are super stoked to be helping our good friends at The North Face Europe at the moment, with product filter for their site. It’s full of drag and drop goodness and will be coming to screen near you next month!View full post (and comment)

A sports-based Facebook app we designed for Budweiser – as it was going into build, the client unfortunately changed their mind and went in a different direction with the whole campaign message, making the app no longer relevant… and so it died before seeing the light of day. So today, we are giving it a little light…View full post (and comment)

Searching back through some old work, we found this – branding for an old project for OpenAir 2011. This was a really quick but fun project and with a name like OpenAir, it allowed us to come up with some really creative solutions. These are some of the rejected designs – still pretty cool though, especially the designs on sheet 1.View full post (and comment)

We can’t show you the case study of our Intel iQ site and branding design just yet, so we thought we would show you a design that didn’t quite make the cut. A very different design solution to the one that went live, but slick all the same.
We look forward to sharing the full case study soon.View full post (and comment)

We are pleased to be able to share our latest infographic for Pfizer for their campaign to raise awareness for Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD). We created the graphic for the UK, Spain, Germany, Holland and Ireland which is shown above. To connect with the viewer on an emotional level and to really allow the visuals to tell the story in a more personal way, we used a hand-drawn approach to the illustrations which gave an almost observational insight. We continued that textured approach over in to the typography, to help create a link between the visuals and data.
It turned out great, definitely one of our favourite recent infographic projects.

We were just digging back through some old work and rediscovered this branding project for Modularis, a company that supplies in-car interfaces to US Police Departments (which we also designed the interfaces for). It was a fun project – the tiled patterns the logo enabled us to create allowed for some really creative design solutions.
Always fun to look back at old work!View full post (and comment)
One of our favourite projects of recent weeks – to create Team GB athlete infographics for adidas that could be easily shareable in the build up to the event. These were fun to create, but at the same time really highlighted how amazing these athletes are.View full post (and comment)
As we look towards the Paralympics and what we hope to be another great games for Team GB, our excitement builds for creating fresh content for adidas. During the main event we were asked to create social content to be used throughout the games. One of the unknown’s for adidas, the Olympic committee and, well, everyone… was the weather! So we set out to create images that would reflect each days weather and still promote adidas in a positive way.
The images above show the adidas performance logo as a cloud in a stormy and dramatic sky and one of the adidas Trefoil logo as a raindrop on a window (both images we were sure would be used during the games!).View full post (and comment)
A great win for Alistair Brownlee yesterday, just sublime, complete dominant display that destroyed the field. Ahead of the race adidas asked us to create a fun snackable graphic about the triathlon that compared what the Brownleee brothers do to something real-world that people could relate too and make them think wow!
This graphic is part of a series that we have created for adidas covering their athletes during the Olympics.View full post (and comment)
After watching another amazing day of dominant cycling by Team GB and as we near the launch of the new 3T Cycling website, we thought we would share a quick shot of the 3T site that never was – one of the design directions that didn’t make it passed RD 1 – but still one of our favourites though. A single page design that was product led, with a really crisp, graphic, design aesthetic with large overlaid typography that was as dynamic and strong as the products themselves.
The site launch will be coming soon.View full post (and comment)

The first image, from our set of Olympic graphics we created for adidas, is now live on the adidas UK Facebook page right now… Go take a look!
We created a set of infographics and images that will be posted on the adidas UK and Global Facebook and Twitter feeds during the Olympics – we can’t share them at the moment of course, for obvious reasons, but do keep an eye out for the full set as they roll out!View full post (and comment)
Today, we launched both the Facebook and mobile apps for Skullcandy skater Theosis Beasley’s European tour. Theo and his skater friends Eric Koston and Sean Malto are will be touring three European cities – Barcelona, Copenhagen and Paris – over the coming week and the app will be tracking them as they kick-flip their way around. Building the apps around Instagram was key. This allows the skaters to post photos from wherever they are of whatever they are doing in real time and for the app to display them just as fast to keep the die-hard skate fans in the know and up to date.

Tracing Murray’s match stats through the rounds we knew he had the game to test Federer, but on the day the Swiss was just too strong.
In the build up to the final, adidas asked KS to create infographics for each game that visualised Murray’s match through the game’s winning shots. The data revealed Andy’s tactics, as well as what was working and how he adapted his game against each opponent. The above graphic is the final match overview, what was interesting however was how the data changed throughout the match as Murray changed his game to better each opponent.View full post (and comment)
An Infographic for the pharmaceutical company Almirall for release ahead of MS Day. The aim of the graphic was to highlight and bring attention to Multiple Sclerosis, it’s symptoms and how it effects people around Europe.
As well as English, we also recreated and translated versions in Danish, German, Spanish, Finnish, French, Swedish and Norwegian.View full post (and comment)
One of many infographics we were asked to create for the Euro 2012 this summer for one of our favourite clients, adidas. Tracking a world class player during a match is very intriguing and throws up some incredible data that truly shows how different players approach and influence the game. Gerrard’s two-touch game was extremely evident in every England game we tracked and made for some interesting data visualisations.View full post (and comment)

Not long until the full reveal.View full post (and comment)
Wow. We just had to share this. The Comedy Carpet by Why Not Associates is a 2,200m square typographic masterpiece that is arguably better than their work A Flock of Words. The masters of modern typographic installations (in my opinion), in collaboration again with Gordon Young, brought a sense of fun and celebration to the project, creating a polished granite walkway sure to draw the crowds. Containing over 160,000 letters embedded into concrete, it is a lesson in type craft on an epic scale.View full post (and comment)
With the 2011 OMAs approaching, I’m reminded of our designs for 2010 awards, the first year of the online event for MTV and how it was a huge learning experience for both them and us. An awards site that announced categories, allowed nominations, tracked voting and aired the live show, all while encouraging social sharing. It was awesome. A huge success and working with MTV on such an iconic and landmark project was an incredible adventure. For the project we designed and directed all branding, iconography and four phases of a site with an evolving design solution.View full post (and comment)
