VANCOUVER 2010 WINTER OLYMPICS | THE LOOK OF THE GAMES :: FROM LEO OBSTBAUM’S PORTFOLIO

The 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics would not be the same without the enormously gifted Leo Obstbaum, who tragically passed away before he could see his vision for the games unfold.

Luckily, his e-portfolio is still online so we can see how he deployed his talents in a variety of applications.

Below are some of my favourites:

We converted the packaging and the bottle into a space station.

Designs of record covers for the House label Vendetta Records.


Main titles for documentary  En Construccíon

The design of the Noemi de la Peña website, a Spanish photographer.

The Mexican singer Paulina Rubio was the hostess of the TV program in which Miss Spain was chosen. She sang her songs off her album during he gala, and we designed the wardrobe for the dancers that performed with her.

Contribution for the book 1X1 Pixel Based & Illustration Design. A work of reference where artists and applications live together, and show a global vision of the reach of pixels.

I chose as the theme Copito de Nieve, the only albino gorilla in the world and who lived at the Barcelona Zoo. It was feared for his health and I had the idea to homage him in life.

On a black background with the cross-stitch technique as the pixel unit, we made, with my wife’s unconditional help, an image of Copito so he would stay in our minds forever, we will never forget you …
