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.
