The Football Crest Index

Today marks the launch of The Football Crest Index kickstarter, an exciting new book documenting the history of the crests of every team to grace the Premier League.

The brain child of designer James Kirkup, the enviable concept cleverly invited designers to represent their own clubs over a two page spread.

“The Football Crest Index is a new independent publication project that’s set out to document the rich history & storytelling behind the crests of the greatest clubs in world football.


The book aims to delve into the rich history of each crest and the evolution of it’s design throughout the clubs history.


We’re starting the project by focussing on the Premier League & the 47 clubs to have graced it since it’s inception back in 1992. The aim then being that if this first volume is a success, we’ll move into covering other leagues around the globe for future volumes.”

Over the past six months, Kirkup has gathered an impressive roster of 47 homegrown designers, a list of which can be viewed on the official website: www.thefootballcrestindex.com. It’s aiming to be released this August, and you can back the project on the Kickstarter today with a variety of different rewards and incentives. Importantly, the profits will go to a number of different charities, and back the next edition scheduled to be on La Liga.
