Manchester United’s matchday posters

It looks like Manchester United’s graphic design department will be worth keeping an eye on over the course of the season (which is more than you can say for the team after two games). While Louis van Gaal’s playing staff have stumbled to one point from their first two games, the United designers are off to a flyer with two … Continue reading

Take Racing Santander fan Rafa San Emeterio, who has decided the Spanish side’s branding isn’t what it could be and … Continue reading

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
