In case you have been outside this beautiful planet, today marked the day where France won the World Cup 2018 against the superb team of Croatia in Luzhniki Stadium, Russia. This is their second World Cup title since 1998, well Félicitations les Bleus! For the occasion, we are sharing the work of Yann Dalon who is an illustrator from Paris, France. We are honouring his work for the French Football Federation (FFF) the decoration of the Russian Hotel for the World Cup 2018 in the town of Istra, Russia.
Our good friend Gordon Reid and in collaboration with designer Callum Stephenson have set up a fun World Cup project. For this project they have commissioned 20 artists and designers from Yarza Twins, Velvet Spectrum, Brand Nu, Hey Studio, Craig Oldhamm, and to name a few. Why? To celebrate their favourite weird or hilarious moment from previous World Cups. All of the original pieces are then to be printed on beer mats and 'exhibited' in pubs around London in time for the World Cup. Check it out!
This is an awesome project by Rudi Gundersen, an illustrator from Norway. Rudi illustrated a star player for almost every country in the World Cup, he picked either the very best player or the icon for each country. Check them out! For more from Rudi Gundersen visit behance.net/rudigundersen.
The FIFA World Cup kicks off tomorrow in Brazil and my home town will host some amazing games. The whole country and world will be tuned in to the games, players and of course they will get a chance to know a little bit more about Brazil as well. One of the best things about the World Cup is the fact that it creates a lot of opportunities in all areas. For designers and illustrators is not different. Today we are stoked to feature the work titled Mano a Mano by Leo Natsume, from my hometown Porto Alegre.
Brazilian Designer Leandro Urban created this minimalist project to show how each country's shield would look as flat design. Check it out as we broke it down into the real groups. Enjoy! For more from Leandro Urban visit behance.net/leandrourban.
