TYPO – I Shall Not Be Moved is a traditional American folk song whose lyrics stretch back to the slave era. The song was adapted by civil rights activists of the 1930s, who changed the lyrics to “We Shall Not Be Moved”. The lyrics represented the determination of those in the Civil Rights movement in the face of government and social oppression, “like a tree that stands by the water, We Shall Not Be Moved.” It sings of the refusal to bow to the powers that be, and the importance of standing up for what you believe in. We Shall Not Be Moved was adopted by English football supporters during the Sixties and nowadays can be heard in stadiums all over the world. New in our shoppa!
IT’S STILL OUR GAME – Yes it is. Still. Still at the terraces. Still walking Reebok Classics and adidas. Still traveling. Still representing for the football supporters all over the world. Still down with graffiti. Still hitting broodjes bal. Still. Still not loving police. Still on the hunt for nice stadiums. Still rocking football shirts. Still. For sure, it’s still our game. Available in our shop now.
We’re proud for hooking up with Niels ‘the Neymar of typography’ Bakkerus, designer of this typo-shirt.
PICKLES – Football & Design and a good read… Pickles issue 6 is now online. For free! Including a small interview with Feyenoord-supporter Ramon about the making of this Johnny Cash x Feyenoord banner. And with some nice artwork of artist Paine Proffitt.
ART – In football there is a lot of rivalry, every fan favours his team over the other which can turn into quite a battle. In this memory game graphic designer Harm van der Burgt combined the logo’s of two rivalling footballclubs or some clubs that have a history together. The combination of two opposing team is an hard sight for most die hard fans. Brilliant!
LISBOA – Again, again and again. Really every piece Zoran Lucić is producing is blazing. Never nooit niet boring! Last week he did a brilliant serie of posters in a collabo with Benfica called the Benfica Vintage Stars.
STYLE – Non-League Lewes FC, sinds 1885. Gruwelijke wedstrijdposters. De club is sinds 2-jaar trouwens “member-owned” en 1 van de member is niemand minder dan Charles Saatchi. Check hier de site van Lewes FC voor meer inspirerende voorbeelden. Iemand een tip voor dit soort affiches van Nederlandse bodem? Met dank aan tipgever Stadiongebod.
