Backyard Ultra Nämforsen


A backyard ultra is a form of ultra marathon where competitors aim to run as many laps of 6 706 meters (4.167 miles) as possible. The winners usually end up running for 24 hours in a row or more.

When the organizers of Backyard Ultra Nämforsen asked me to draw a logotype for the event, I took the mission a bit further. Inspired by the vast nature of Näsåker and the great hydropower plant residing there, I drew a UPA-inspired mood picture to emphasize the unrealisticness of people actually committing to this. I am so deeply impressed.
