The European Handball Federation (EHF), and its marketing arm EHF Marketing, has commissioned Jump Design and Direction to design and produce all of the on-screen graphics for the EHF Champions League, EHF European League and the EHF European Handball Championships and Qualifiers for both the men's and women's competitions.
The appointment marks the start of a new five-year contract between the pair, who have been working together since April, when Jump created graphics for the first tournament to feature the new designs, which began on 12th September.
"We are delighted to expand our working relationship with Infront and DAZN through this new project with their handball team,” said Richard Norley, Head Creative, Jump.
“It has been an absolute pleasure working with both parties and the EHF itself to create the broadcast identities for all their major competitions over the next five years. And from a Jump perspective we are proud to add yet another new sport to our growing and diverse portfolio."
All graphics are designed in line with the EHF’s and its competitions’ new design system that was created and launched prior to the 2020/21 season to offer consistent communication of the new handball umbrella brand across all European competitions.
Jump has an unparalleled background designing and delivering on-screen graphics and broadcast toolkits including the technical aspect of delivery and roll-out. The agency has been the Official Visual Graphics Supplier of the Sport Industry Awards since 2015.
Peer Seitz, Head of Production, Infront Production, added: "Jump handed in a very strong creative offer. The development process of the different packages was smooth and straight forward. Jump also did a great job delivering all elements on schedule and at the quality we expect for one of our key assets here at Infront considering the relatively tight timeline."
The move to appoint Jump was taken after a competitive tender by EHF Marketing, Infront and DAZN, who earlier this year signed a ten-year partnership to modernise the identity in order to continue to grow the appeal of the EHF brand.
The deal will also see Jump create a package that can be adapted for the EHF European Cup, Beach Handball, Youth Competitions and Draw events.
