Barcelona, Real Madrid, Valencia, Malaga and Athletic Bilbao are among those to feature, but we’ve picked out Peter’s version of reigning La Liga champions Atletico Madrid’s crest here.

Huddersfield Town’s ‘Give Us An H’ matchday programme newspaper

The excellent The 12elfth Man blog draw our attention to Huddersfield Town’s new programme. With ‘Give Us An H’, the Terriers have moved away from the A5 glossy familiarity of the matchday programme in favour of a paper publication that looks more like a particularly stylish newspaper in appearance. The overhaul and change of material has allowed Huddersfield to cut … Continue reading

Marouane Fellaini’s ever-expanding afro gif

The sadly recently defunct The Equaliser was an email combining great design and football stats. This gif they made doesn’t exactly fulfil the stats part of the bargain, but it is great design. It features an illustration of Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini, whose trademark afro hairdo keeps growing and growing and growing, then shrinking back to its starting length, … Continue reading


Football Shirt Typography by Rob Gill

Graphic designer Rob Gill has put together a football shirt typography XI. He has gone 1-11 with each number in a different style. The starting point for the project was Alan Shearer’s iconic England no.9 shirt from Euro 96. You might also recognise no.1 as being Gordon Banks, but we don’t want to give too many of them away.

Specials of the Match Day by The Chase

Manchester-based creative consultancy The Chase produced this poster for an exhibition in 2013, but we’ve only just come across it so we’re going to work to the assumption that you might have missed it to.
