Accept & Proceed's Euro 2012 screensavers
London-based design studio Accept & Proceed is launching a set of iPhone screensaver graphs to commemorate each game of the Euro 2012 championship…
The idea is that at the end of each game in the tournament, A&P will tweet an iPhone sized info graphic which commemorates the game, showing cards given and goals scored. Above is an example of how a screensaver will look, based on the one goal Euro 2008 final between Germany and Spain. Each graph can easily be saved and installed as the home or lock screen on an iPhone.
"By the time of the final on 1st July we will have released a body of graphs that will tell a visual story of all of the games of Euro 2012," says A&P's David Johnston.
As well as the graphs, A&P are creating screens for each country (Spain example shown above) as potential home screen wallpaper for iPhones. Each country has a white stripe so that when goals are scored, the coloured circles on the graph overlap more pleasingly. These can all be downloaded from news.acceptandproceed.com
In case you're wondering how the graph works - here's a guide (below). Goals are represented by big circles sporting the colours of the team that have scored it, and yellow and red cards appear in the relevant time position on the graph.

What are the "+" symbols?
The + symbols represent the half time, full time and where the penalties start.
See the legend in pink above.
A&P - This is very cool.
Another interesting take on the reportage of a single sporting event. I do enjoy Accept & Proceeds organised but seemingly abstract approach to data visualisation. Well done folks
Looking for 5 or 6 big England coloured circles dotted with little french red squares on tonights graph.
These guys must have too much time of their hands!!
(Though I must admit I like them).
Looking forward to the England / France colours tonight.
Very creative. Always interesting to see artistic representations of statistical data. Like if Mondrian had worked for Nielsen. Bravo!
I'm downloading mine as I type!
Love them, I hope the competition is as inspiring.
A fine idea superbly executed - good work A&P
Been following this on twitter, loving it!
Great work A&P - looking forward to a montage at the end of the tournament
Great stuff – and I'm not even into soccer!
I like the way it looks like it has nothing to do with football.
Very cool, abstract and original
It's always interesting to see the overlap where sport meets art. I remember Nike doing an interesting thing The Art of Football a while back, which I think these guys were involved with.
Wonderful interpretations of The Beautiful Game.
Lovely stuff / great idea / I wouldn't expect anything less than excellent from the chaps at A&P... Let's hope the England graphs have lots of big circles in them... ;)
As always great stuff from A & P. Already have my England screensaver on my phone
Statistics mixed with Graphics = Amazing Stunning Visually Engaging ART. Not just for Football Fans.
awesome idea - can you produce these screensavers for airlines?
Accept & Proceed can do pretty much anything - do you own an Airline?
always awesome boys!!!
A graphic tour de force by A&P, lovely stuff.
Will be getting the SWE 2 - FRA 0 right away.
Those are really great. Thanks for share.
