MLS Rivalry Week

FAN was commissioned to art direct the 2015 Match Posters for MLS Rivalry Week. It gave us the opportunity to have a lot of fun with these and really try to re-imagine what the modern soccer poster can look like. A lot of soccer posters and sports posters in general rely heavily on simply juxtaposing rivals in stylized poses with flashy graphic elements. Sometimes it's just a star player or two. We really wanted to inject these with narrative depth going deep into the history of the competing clubs.  The Series was Art Directed by Daniel Nyari.
