Game Of Thrones At Work
Even Game Of Thrones characters have day jobs.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last month you’ll have been pretty hard pushed to avoid the build-up to one of the most eagerly anticipated World Cup finals of all time. Football will return to it’s spiritual home of Brazil and we are expecting a festival of colour and style as the tournament takes in 12 cities from the iconic Copacabana beach in Rio to the sweltering heat of the Amazonian jungle in Manaus.
Unfortunately our office isn’t brimming with any budding Messi’s or Ronaldo’s and the online team didn’t fare too well at the company football tournament in 2012 – think England circa 93/94. What we do have, however, is a few creative minds and a copy of Photoshop. We are best known for producing market leading posters so we decided to give our own unique World Cup twist to some classic movie posters from years gone by.
Head over to GBMotors for the full gallery.
