Post by Chris: Football Kit Typography #design

Throughout the years I have collected football kits. It’s been a habit since the 1994 USA World Cup, where everyone watched Baggio miss the penalty and Romario take the world by storm. But what stood out having looked back at old footage is the extravagant football kit designs. Not only did the kits have a variety of patterns and textures, but the typography and numbering was brilliant. Below I’ve put together some of my favourite examples from over the years:

Italy — 1980

Brasil — 1994

Ivory Coast — 2010

Werder Bremen — 2010

England — 2012

Italy — 2012

Barcelona — 2012
