Big International Football Competition

Did you know that the term ‘The World Cup’ when used in conjunction with football is trademarked by FIFA – so is the word FIFA by the way.

This presents us with a tricky graphic design challenge when a venue wants to show the matches but does not want to fall foul of copyright laws. Here are my two solutions. One I made in 2014, the other for the current competition.

I’d like to point out also that I didn’t draw the main graphic, or the graphic element for the Russia 2018 graphic. Nope, I ‘hacked’ the official Russia tourist board website and downloaded the SVG for the image of the red square minorettes. That’s what happens when you hack our NHS Moscow!
