The Team at Graffiti put on an amazing event for Formula 1, launching the 2019 global season to over 10,000 fans and a worldwide broadcast. Producing this event from end to end, included concept development, stage management, global broadcast, talent management and production.
For the first time in the sporting history of Formula 1, twenty drivers and ten team principals appeared together on the stage for the official kick off. Profiling Melbourne in a spectacular way, they arrived at Federation Square by boat on the Yarra River, where they were greeted by thousands of die-hard fans. The drivers were all very relaxed as they signed autographs and talked to fans on their way to the stage. After all being interviewed in their teams by Mark Webber, they appeared in the ultimate selfie!
Fans around Australia and the world were captivated by this event, as it trended #1 on Twitter.
