World Cup 2010 Posters Inspired by African Pattern Heritage and Contemporary Football

There are now only eight weeks left until the kick-off of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. This is the first time the greatest sporting event in the world is being held on the African continent, and promises to be an exciting exploration, of not only football, but of African culture, heritage and art.

As a celebration of this event, visual designer Charis Tsevis has designed, as a personal experiment, a series of posters that have been greatly inspired by the great African pattern heritage and contemporary football culture. They are his personal journey exploring Africa's history and tradition, and have given him nothing but great pleasure and an endless lesson.

South Africa is one of the most beautiful and most vivid places I have ever seen. The country is amazing and rich of cultures and history. I am going to return to visit it soon. (Charis Tsevis)
The posters have been designed with custom developed scripts and techniques in Synthetik Studio Artist, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Apple QuickTime Pro. The typeface used is PF Etnica.
