‘GLORY GLORY’ EXHIBITION POSTER

Our submission to Glory Glory, an exhibition of ‘poster art that celebrates the language of the beautiful game’. Each contributor was invited to design a typographic poster illustrating a football chant of their choice. So we chose the monkey chant. The grotesque, banana waving monkey chant that echoes around the stands when black players receive the ball. We credited it to AS Roma, as they relentlessly harass Balotelli with this treatment, (to the point their game against Milan was suspended earlier this year) but it could be many European clubs; It’s ubiquitous.

Catalogue designed by Nick Blakeman, Alex Brown and Craig Oldham.
