Road to Tokyo

Rebranding Africa’s largest action sports festival

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Ultimate X is Africa’s elite action sports festival. Every year, the festival takes place at the Sun City Resort in the Pilanesberg and includes thrilling displays of the ‘Big 5’: Skate, BMX, FMX, Surf and MTX. The rebooted contest format, that happened alongside their rebrand, is in line with Olympic skateboarding (yes, it's an official sport at last from 2020) qualification standards.

For Ultimate X’s 10th year, an entire rebrand of South Africa’s premium action sports festival was created. We wanted something that was bold, fresh and clean, reflecting the direction these sports have taken. For the brand’s 2018 Sun City event, Road to Tokyo, we create a hyper-simple poster campaign from the new Brand System that expressed the dynamism of the sports at the event, with the brand front and centre in the design language. To further enhance the idea of motion that the events capture, each poster had an AR component in which the visual language was animated.
