No football party is complete without the finer detail of design. The Football League is prepping a fresh season though it's brand has been wrapped up and delivered with time to spare. Our latest edition of 'Football Type' takes a closer look.

It's fair to say that the re-brand of the Football League to the EFL (English Football League) may have turned traditions royally upside down.

That said however, the flavoured typography that is due to grace shirts up and down the UK sits in sophisticated fashion once it's been applied to apparel (as the image below shows).
