In the list of rousing film speeches one stands out above all others – better even than Mel Gibson in Braveheart, Bill Pullman as the president in Independence Day and John Candy in Cool Runnings. Al Pacino’s inches speech in enjoyably over-the-top American football film Any Given Sunday reflects on the small margins in sport, and in life, that make all the difference: " One half step too late or to early you don’t quite make it. One half second too slow or too fast and you don’t quite catch it. The inches we need are everywhere around us. They are in ever break of the game every minute, every second."
Even though they’re uber colourful and uber fun, Ryan Todd’s illustrations for Curly’s Pocket Guide Olympic app have a whiff of the inches about them at times, small close-up totems of the great sporting extravaganza playing out in east London.
It’s the most eye-catching of his new updates which also include a cool mural for the offices of OgilvyOne in Switzerland and various other assorted illustrative delights all of which make clear Ryan is a man at the very top of his game, no Pacino-pep-talk needed.
