FAI – Football Matchday Programme Covers
Posted 8 months ago and submitted by Marcus Marritt | Share link: http://illo.cc/67970

I was commissioned by the FAI to illustrate matchday programme covers for two Republic of Ireland fixtures, the World Cup qualifier v Wales and the international friendly v Iceland. The briefs were relatively open, though with the Wales game being a competitive qualifier the client wanted a visual based on players from each side battling for the ball. For the Iceland cover, with the Republic of Ireland and Iceland fans so well known for creating fantastic atmospheres I wanted a visual based on the fans. As both games were played at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin, famous for its unique structure I wanted to include a visual reference to this on both covers – with the Wales cover showing the outside of the stadium and the Iceland cover taking us pitchside.

‘Marcus has been an absolute delight to work with. Nothing is ever too much bother and I have been blown away by how incredibly talented he is. Always takes the time to explain his reasoning for certain aspects of his design and has been very adaptable to a number of different briefs. He is our go to guy for all our design needs. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.'
