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.

Tom Balchin

When I first saw Tom Balchin’s work, it blew my mind. This talented designer has a certain style that just seems perfect to me on every level. Tom uses only the minimum amount of elements and colors and organizes them on a solid grid. Perfect.

Not much to say about Manchester based studio Music other than that they produce amazing work. Pictured above are a series of reports printed on sugar paper for the Manchester Independent Economic Review.
