Casper Heijkenskjöld Atelier came up with a visual concept to express both the genre of boxing, but also to depict the struggle of a sensitive and lonely boy. We worked on visual identity, logo, poster and motion graphics.
“Abdul is 19 and the most promising boxing talent in Denmark. He works his way up with Mikkel Kessler (former world champion) as support and role model. He is pressured by religion, family, culture, tradition, ethnicity and expectations. The film explores how Abdul comes of age in a visually sensitive universe in sharp contrast to a masculine environment.”
