Since the very first FIFA World Cup tournament in 1930, the official World Cup posters have been a primary means of visual communication for the momentous, quadrennial event. Although some of the artwork over the years has been considered hit and miss, they’ve all provided indelible memories and a delightful record of global graphic design history for one of the world’s best-loved sports.
With just two weeks to go until the 2014 World Cup, we’re taking a look back at all the official World Cup posters to date.
We hope you enjoy this fascinating archive of visual art as much as we do!
