The World Cup from a Graphic Artist’s Perspective

I am surrounded by many insanely talented people, and one of those artists is Lorraine, who I met in German class at Missouri State. I love her taste in graphic design and style, and I am continually amazed at the beautiful pieces she finds around the web.

Now that both America’s and England’s Summermärchen are over (and Germany is through to the quarter finals!!!), I think some inspiring World Cup design might lift losing spirits (unless you’re rooting for Germany, in which case, party in the streets!!!).

In her Weekly Reader: World Cup Edition, Lorraine shared a great article on World Cup iPhone apps ;), a history of the World Cup logos (I like Mexico 1970 and 1986, and Italy 1990; totally disagree with the author about the Germany 2006 logo), a very German World Cup guidebook, and a beautiful bracket tracker.

In closing… AUF GEHT’S DEUTSCHLAND, SCHIESS EIN TOOOOOOR!!!

    Aw, thanks, Lindchen! I’ve also found that the ESPN ScoreCenter app has been inindispensable if you can’t watch the games on tv, but still want to follow them live.
