Gods Led by Goats

In 1975, Athlone Town from the League of Ireland hosted the mighty Ac Milan in the UEFA Cup. It was a momentous occasion for the town, and is remembered with great fondeness to this day. The goal of this project was to remember and commemorate the occasion with a visual campaign. From interviews with people who were at the match and involved in the occasion, I gleaned some great insights that were used to guide the direction of the project.

The idea was to create a play that remember and commemorate the event. Much of the work here is promotional material.
