THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD CUP

As FIFA built their football museum in Zürich the need to breathe new life into old archive material soon became apparent. We delivered nine large backdrop posters showcasing the World Cup tournaments played between 1930 and 1970. The main goal was to provide a sense of zeitgeist which in the end brought on not only a run down of football history but also an inventory of 20th century graphic design and illustration. Stroll down memory lane!

END OF AN ERA

In 1970 Brazil won the World Cup for the third time and was awarded the original Jules Rimet Trophy for all time. In the eighties however the trophy was stolen and has not resurfaced again, making those golden days of football seem sadly distant.
