I LOVE the BBC’s Winter Olympics animation…the contrast of the black and white really make it look amazing.

The designer is Jon Klassen (in collaboration with Marc Craste & Studio AKA) and the animation shuns the usual bright colors and cheering crowds in favour of action, danger, and a wonderfully dark motif.
