Primarily a basketball fan, the 2018 FIFA World Cup was the first time I became a fan of football. To commemorate this particular moment in my life, I chose to design monograms for the teams I cheered for.
Each monogram design is reflects each country’s flag. The colours chosen for the border and letters are each country’s respective flag colours. Wanting a bold aesthetic, I was influenced by the style of Gothic lettering, which gave a historic feel since it’s a moment in time to remember. The decorative swirls were also added to develop a modern touch.
The original design idea I had was to illustrate the countries in one. Instead, I started them off individually and them worked them together—like a football team.
