Glory Glory

Glory Glory

Some­times I wish I lived in the UK, so that I can attend all these great design exhi­bi­tions. Glory Glory is one of them, an upcom­ing exhi­bi­tion and book of large for­mat typo­graphic posters based on foot­ball (soc­cer) chants. Some of the con­trib­u­tors are Ben Bos, Wim Crouwel, Bib­lio­thèque, Build, Craig Old­ham, Exper­i­men­tal Jet­set, Mash Cre­ative, SEA, Spin, Dave Sedg­wick, and many more.

The exhi­bi­tion will take place tomor­row at:

Hox­ton Arches
37 Cre­mer Street
Lon­don E2 8HD

All pro­ceeds will go to British Blind Sport.

This great exhi­bi­tion is curated by Nick Blake­man, Alex Brown and Craig Old­ham, and spon­sored by Gavin Mar­tin Colour­net and GF Smith.

I haven’t been able to find any of the posters that were designed for the event, but Dave Sedg­wick sent in his awe­some con­tri­bu­tion, which is pic­tured above. His piece uses foot­ball studs to cre­ate the type and the chant is of the Argen­tin­ian team, Boca Juniors. It’s made of wood and acrylic, and the rest of the chant is etched into the wood around the edges.

Great design­ers, great design, for a good cause. Sounds like it’s going to be a fun time. If you’re in Lon­don, be sure not to miss this.
