The Treacherous Tarmac – Bristol City Council
Posted 8 years ago and submitted by Ian Ball | Share link:


I’ve completed another animation for the Keep Your Wheels project. ‘The Treacherous Tarmac’ is the third installment in the series and deals with the issue of road surface conditions.

Bristol City Council’s Tom Southerby said “Our aim was to educate young moped riders, living in Bristol, about the dangers of various road conditions such as oil spillages and weather conditions. We commissioned Ian to design a fun, engaging and humourous short film as his original, off-the-wall style is perfect for our target audience.”

Ensuring our website engaged with 16-24 year olds was essential to the success of our campaign. Thankfully we found Ian who had previous experience of designing creative web sites, animations and publicity work aimed at targeting youth markets. His unique artistic style, which has a wide-appeal, allowed us to highlight important road safety messages in an engaging and non authoritive way. We look forward to continue to work with Ian.
