Berlin, 15th of January 2003
Final of eleven designers in Berlin
Eleven alternatives to the official logo for the football world championship 2006
»We do not have to give up yet« - following this motto the German national
designer-team presented themselves on the pitch in mid January 2003.
Opponent: the official logo for the football word championship in 2006.
Reason enough for design professors Fons Hickmann and Klaus Hesse to go onto
the offensive, German design has a lot to loose in the end.
They got two sweaty half-times done and united other nine design studios to
guarantee a maximum of goals with their counter-proposals.
Today it is done, the game is nearly over: the eleven designers present
their ideas and opponent logos at the University of the Arts in Berlin at
13.00 o’clock (Hardenbergstraße, lecture theatre 158). With the adequate
fairness of the world cup organization committee as referee, the eleven
designers might force an extra-time.
