Glory Glory

Glory Glory is an upcoming exhibition and book of large format typographic posters based on football chants, in support of British Blind Sport. It is curated by Made Thought designer Nick Blakeman, Sea Design designer Alex Brown and FFF-regular and ex-Music Craig Oldham. The event is kindly sponsored by Gavin Martin Colournet and GF Smith.

The trio has already signed up 32 high-profile players including Bibliothèque, Hat-Trick Design, Margaret Calvert, Music, The Chase, and Build. We spoke with one contributors and managed to get some behind the scenes info of Dave Sedgwick’s piece.

I came up with the idea of using football studs to create typography and chose the Argentinian team of Boca Juniors for my chant. The piece is made from wood, acrylic and is approximately just over a metre in size. The rest of the chant is etched into the wood around the hexagon edges. Liam Hopkins of Lazerian helped to make the object. – Dave Sedgwick.
