Robot Wars BBC2 Ident

 

This page shows a little side project that I completed at the University of Hertfordshire in 1999. The brief was to add a 3D Model to an existing series of advertising objects. As I competed in Robot Wars Series II, I thought it a good idea to add an ident to the BBC 2 set involving Robot Wars.

Here is the Outcome, First seen on Series III

Weight : 6.1kg / Lightweight

Dimensions : 290mm x 500mm x 570mm

The Sketch to the right is a concept idea, even so the final outcome worked out to be very close to this sketch.

Here you can see the moving parts of the BBC 2 Ident, with text of the BBC.
