So you had a look at this years World Cup kits (with France being the best in my eyes) now you can look at a lnfographic of the history of all 32 teams kits. Since the competition began in 1930, the 32 teams that make up this year’s World Cup field have donned a variety of kits to showcase regional colors, pride, and emblems pertaining to their respective countries. The Guardian recently put together a comprehensive and interactive showcase to illustrate just that. While the large graphic appears above, head here to see the more interactive and in-depth coverage pertaining to each team and their respective kits through the years – from Croatia’s signature checks to Holland’s orange colourway.

“Football Invisibles” by Mark Yesilevskiy

6975563_15910089_bGraphic designer Mark Yesilevskiy has always been passionate about the beautiful game of football and to celebrate that passion, he’s produced this “Football Invisibles” project. Celebrating some of the more iconic football kits from around the world, Yesilevskiy has created pieces that not only celebrate these uniforms, but also keep the focus solely on them, rather than the sometimes oversized personalities that wear them. To do so, the graphic designer decided to completely omit the players and instead used a “ghost” technique which gives the uniforms a sense of life and motion. With kits like the ’94 Manchester United home, ’98 World Cup winning France  home, and the ’94 United States men’s national team included in the project, it’s worth checking out if you have love for the beautiful game.
