Basically anyone from any country other than the United States will tell you soccer isn’t a game, it’s a religion. A really, really beautifully-played religion. A new magazine, Eight by Eight, has sought to create a magazine that does justice to the world sport.
According to the Eight by Eight website, designers Robert Priest and Grace Lee were inspired by the revival of a soccer-embracing culture in the US, even pulling the name from the dimensions of a goal—8 feet high by 8 yards long. Their goal is to not only create a beautiful product, but to fill it with great articles as well.
Only three issues into the project, they seem to have conquered the huge task of covering the World Cup. The 116 page World Cup Special Issue looks like something any designer would love to own, sports fan or not.
Their Instagram feed is also filled with awesome illustrations and previews.
