Designer beer mats celebrate weird World Cup moments

Beer mat depicting the Hand of God

Beer and football go together like an English penalty shoot-out and crushing disappointment. So with the 2018 World Cup just about to kick off, what could be a better medium for designers looking to celebrate the event than the humble beer mat? That's the thinking behind Weird World Cup, the latest project from Gordon Reid and Callum Stephenson.

Working with twenty designers, illustrators and creatives – including Jack Renwick and  Wade Jeffree – the Weird World Cup beer mats relive bizarre moments from competition matches of years gone by. Created using Adobe Creative Cloud and Stock, the mats are due to be 'exhibited' in pubs around London during the 2018 World Cup and are a tongue in cheek way to mark the occasion.
