AWH World Cup Awesomeness Round-up
We’re getting pretty amped about the upcoming world cup at AWH HQ. Screens are calibrated, lucky uniforms/totems are at the ready and strong coffee is brewing, let’s do this!
Every four years the excitement of the World Cup spills into the design world and we get to enjoy some really fun and inspiring projects, our favorites of which we wanted to share here. We hope they might inspire even some non-sports lovers to get swept up in the fun and excitement of the cup!

Colombia’s (Elsa’s team) star player Radamel Falcao didn’t make the cup because of injury, but he’s been captured in these great World Cup player portraits by Daniel Nyari for ESPN FC.
The boots in this Adidas Battle Pack Collection are some of the raddest we’ve seen, digging those patterns and restrained use of color.
Even the balls in the World Cup have a deep history, and the World Cup match ball history page explains it all. Our favorite is still the ’94 Questra edition.
Howler is a beautifully designed magazine about the beautiful game, seems so fitting. Check out the World Cup special edition, Creative Directed by Joel Speasmaker.
These International team posters from ESPN by Ben Clark & Mathieu Zarbatany have so much energy you can’t help but get amped up.
We’ve been enjoying the silly but informative cup previews by the Men in Blazers on Grantland.
This cup’s mascot is a Brazilian three-banded armadillo named Fuelco that rolls into a ball! We support that, and will be wearing our Fuelco slippers for comfort and good luck.
