Europe-wide mural for Lufthansa

The German airline Lufthansa's latest campaign has employed the talents of five top illustrators - all working in their own street-inspired style. The agency Wunderman divided up briefs based on different Lufthansa destinations across Europe, and sent them to artists Ben Talon, Miss Led, Chris Ede, Mart Klein and Patrick Rosche. Each was commissioned via Die Illustratoren and asked to come up with their own take on the cities they were given.

"Provided it had an urban edge and a few key recognizable elements the brief was pleasantly open," explains Ben Tallon, though he felt the heat of a quick turnaround. "Doing 15 A2 illustrations in five days meant that I had to respond to everything around me and invoke a less is more approach. One illustrator pointed out to me that if I didn't sleep, I had eight hours per illustration but I personally benefit from not being allowed to overkill my work so I was delighted with the results."
