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 it 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.
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.
