The Usyk Story
A mini documentry telling the story of Oleksandr Usyk, as part of the coverage for his unification title fight with Tyson Fury.
Wanting to reference his roots in the design style, the reference points were Ukrainian folk art, particuarly wood cut prints, along with more modern Cyrillic type, and traditional Cossack patterning. We also introduced the national colours where possible.
