Soccer (football) is the world's game. That includes art school.
Despite the fact that sports and art are often framed as antithetical, there exists massive overlap between the world of professional sports and the creative industries. I wanted to design a jersey which could exist as a bridge between my passion for football and my community at RISD.

To advertise the upcoming jersey release and future Midnight Soccer sessions, I reached out to two extremely talented RISD illustrators, Jack Zhou and Annie Ren. Their brief was to design a character (or two) wearing the Midnight Soccer Jersey in a dynamic pose of their choosing, which I then composed a poster around.
