History of the FIFA World Cup Poster

Since 1930, the FIFA World Cup has captured the imagination of generations of players and spectators alike, in an event that brings together the spirit of all that is best about the world's greatest game.  The Official Poster is an important event mark: it is not only recognized as an event publicity poster, but also as a significant contribution to the way the event will be remembered in the form of art.

Concept

To reflect the culture of both football and of the two host nations, Iner-brand were inspired to create a poster that combined the passion of football with equal cultural influences.  Calligraphy was used to create an universal icon - the football pitch - to provide a powerful and logical response to the brief.  The art of brushstrokes and calligraphy reflects values such as drama, speed, agility, beauty, and skill inherent in football itself.

The FIFA World Cup has been held in 13 nations to date, and in 2002 there will be 15.  The 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan will be the first FIFA World Cup to be held in Asia and it is the first to be co-hosted by two nations.

This special scenario led to the need to approach the poster with a different methodology to previous years.  It was agreed that the poster should be brought to life by using two artists from the host nations Korea and Japan - the eminent artists Byun Choo Suk from Korea and Hirano Sogen from Japan were briefed on this enviable task.

Byun Choo Suk is a well known calligrapher both in his home country and around the world.  His work has been featured in international advertising and graphic design periodicals and at international poster exhibitions, including his own private exhibition at The Art Directors Club in New York.  Byun Choo Suk is currently a consultant and a professor at Kookmin University in Korea.

Hirano Sogen was granted a license as a Calligraphy Master in his youth and went on to receive several top calligraphy awards including the prestigious Highest Award at the Shodan Inn exhibition.  He is currently a member of JCCA and Tetsu (the Japanase Calligraphy Association), while also being the chief editor of a professional magazine and head master of a calligraphy school.

Process

The two artists came together on 25th of June 2001 for a two-day studio session.  Both artists used their own brushes, but shared paper and ink.  An exhaustive two days were spent collaborating on this unique piece of art and there was much discussion about the art generated.

The choice was difficult as explained by Ged Equi from Inter-brand "within a matter of hours we were surrounded by hundreds of brushstrokes - each one as expressive and dynamic as the last."  Together equal numbers of the 'best' brushstrokes were scanned, digitized, and colored up to create the final version of the poster.



Central Image

In the middle of the emblem there is a stylized representation of the FIFA World Cup Trophy which symbolizes the unique image of the FIFA World Cup as the key element of the emblem.  It is the first-ever emblem to include a stylized Trophy in the history of the FIFA World Cup Trophy as the center.

Appearance

The overall appearance of the emblem is one of a circle.  This was chosen for its highly symbolic nature: the circle has been part of the Asian culture for many centuries and has also stood for the universe, the sun, the world, and balanced life.  Thus the theme of a circle and a sphere is used to constitue both the outer shape and the FIFA World Cup Trophy at the center.

Color

The symbol is brightly colored to embody the vibrant colors of the many different countries participating in the tournament.  Moreover, the symbol uses colors with a special meaning in Asia.  Example: Yellow (Middle of the emblem) the Symbol of "center" in Asia.  White (Surrounding the Trophy) the Symbol of "Purity"in Asia.

The circle is left open at the top-left of the emblem to indicate openness of the FIFA World Cup Trophy to anyone in the world.  In other words, each and every participant stands a chance of winning the Trophy, the grand prize for reaching his ultimate goal of seizing the championship.

The Logotype

The logotype consists of three parts: the year (2002), the FIFA World Cup logo (FIFA WORLD CUP) and the names of the host countries (Korea & Japan).  Each has been designed to reflect the characteristics of the World Cup from various perspective.

Year 2002

The two zeros of the year 2002 are represented by the symbol of 'infinity', embodying the spirit of eternal unity and the harmonious link between Korea and Japan as well as among all the World Cup participants.

Logo:  FIFA World Cup

The "FIFA WORLD CUP" lettering is reserved for FIFA to use in every tournament.  *The "2002 FIFA World Cup" lettering appears in gold to represent dignity.

Host:  Korea & Japan

The lettering of the co-hosts' names combines a traditional Asian style with a touch of modern sense.  The names are in the color of their national flags rather than their national.
