Football Art: Graphic Designer James Campbell Taylor Beautifully Redesigns Every World Cup Poster From 1930-2014 (Photos)

By Chris Wright

Nottingham-born, Manhattan-based graphic designer James Campbell Taylor is the brains (and dexterous fingers) behind the Pennarello design website, which positively drips with achingly beautiful football nostalgia.

We tell you this because, after realising that the last few official World Cup posters had got a bit, in his own words, “dull and corporate”, the talented Mr Taylor decided to have a go at redesigning all 20.

The results, predictably, are stunning.

Here is but a small selection…

1934-italy-copy

1938-france

1950-brasil

1966-england

1970-mexico1

1978-argentina

1994-usa

1998-france

2002-korea-japan

2006-germany21

2014-brasil-pele

The rest of Pennarello’s gorgeous World Cup designs available to view and purchase in print/t-shirt/pillow form here.

We think we may just have to bulk order the whole bloody lot!

    These are VERY cool!! Thanks for posting this.

    I loved the USA 94 and the Deutschland 06 the best.

    There are a lot of unemployed graphic designers out there spending their time making vintage-looking new designs of old things.
    Er, cool?
