The British Sailing Team has released a collection of ten iconic posters featuring all 15 athletes picked to represent Team GB at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
To mark the poster launch, the British Sailing Team is holding a competition for fans to win signed posters of their favourite sailors, plus a set of all ten for their sailing club, school or organisation of choice.
Each image blends action photos of the sailors with quintessential Japanese illustration that takes inspiration from the famous illustration The Great Wave off Kanagawa by Katsushika Hokusai.
“We wanted to create something iconic to celebrate the sailors who will fly the flag for Team GB at Tokyo 2020,” said Will Carson, communications manager for the British Sailing Team.
“Our designers have done a fantastic job to blend amazing photographs taken by Mark Lloyd during a British Sailing Team training camp with distinctly Japanese illustration based on the Great Wave off Kanagawa. Each poster is unique but unmistakably part of the same set.”
