Securing Stansted Airport
Awareness campaign for Essex Police, Stansted Airport and the Department for Transport
It’s 5.49am in deepest Essex countryside.
You’re half asleep, and pondering whether to make a purchase from Richard and Judy’s bookclub, a pint at Wetherspoons, or maybe just getting your flight while herding 3 kids away from mini-Hamleys.
You may not see things and if you do, you might not have time to say things.
So it’s unlikely anything will get sorted.
Stansted airport required a campaign to grab passenger’s attention, and at the same time curtail potential hostile activity.
Echoing the minimal work of Frank Miller with a nod to Josef Müller-Brockmann‘s impactful safety posters from the 1950s, bold compositions were created. Strong geometric lines hinting at airport architecture allowed the protagonists to stand out, always keeping a potential hostile ominously large and tightly cropped in the foreground for dramatic effect.
