RKCR/Y&R has continued its recent strong work for Land Rover/Range Rover with a new campaign for the Range Rover Sport set in the Large Hadron Collider, no less

The agency has picked up a string of awards for its Land Rover work, which includes Passport for the Defender (which we wrote about here).

The new Range Rover Sport campaign comprises a beautifully shot TV commercial (directed by Johnny Green) which imagines the SUV as the result of some high energy explosion at the Hadron Collider (great music, The Dead Texan: Aegina Airlines, not sure about the charging herd of wildebeest opening).

while the accompanying print work picks out features of the car in beams of light (photography by Lee Aldridge and Ben Edwards).

The unstoppable Clifford Richards

Now in his 70s, Clifford Richards left his advertising job in the mid 1960s to focus on creating his own products, invariably made from card and adorned with bold, colourful graphic illustration. Much of his work from the 60s and 70s
