The launch of the Chalice will be supported with a digital media campaign with the Chalice as the hero. This will also act in informing the consumer about the Prize promotion.
The brief was to produce a beautiful, illustrative, part chronologic, part geographic timeline taking consumers on a visual feast of an illustrative journey around the Chalice glass, Highlighting key dates, places, events, quotes, inspirations and influences absorbed by San Miguel along its 125-year journey to present day.
The map illustration sketch focused on working on the composition of the 5 historical dates and how these dates would be drawn on the chalice glass. The idea for the map was to illustrate a wave that circulates the chalice glass. The small spot illustration was researched for each specific date and illustrated chronologically for the illustration. Typography was introduced to the illustrations to highlight the key 5 historical years and a top and bottom banners on the glass to highlight the slogan of the campaign. All details of the illustration were hand drawn to present a bespoke look and feel to the map illustration.
