While the political game may not be played out in the middle of the pitch, the power of the game is an unquestioned force of it's own. Threading his own message through a football shirted medium, Eldejo has shone with another kitted instalment that crosses cultures as well as borders.
Feeling energised and motivated to make a stand, the man behind this graphic storm of messaging explains the inspiration was to offer a chance to "band together and resist." Whatever your political stand point, it's certainly something to marvel with a designed eye.
Jason Lee, AKA Eldejo goes on to explain, "the allover pattern is inspired by the resurgence of protest and is a compilation of the many slogans against Trump and all forms of divisiveness. It's set against a tie-dye pattern in American flag colors, symbolizing the protest movement of the 60s. The crest is the United States of friggin' America. Front sponsor is a play on the Three Amigos! movie title font replaced with Bad Hombres! The Left sleeve badge is a mashup between the Mexican beer Dos Equis and the Mexican flag, a sign of support for our brothers and sisters within the States and down south. The back is with "El Guapo", one of the characters from the Three Amigos! Right sleeve badge is a spinoff of the UEFA Respect logo, replaced with RESIST and Dump Trump."
A continued exploration into spaces in which football can travel, it's another poignant serving from a designer who continues to land waves and break moulds. A SoccerBible collaboration? It's about time.
