SPIRAL is a print publication that bridges the gap between football and culture. Printed annually, each issue explores a theme that connects the culture surrounding the game through the worlds of sport, art, design, music and fashion.
For the second issue of SPIRAL, Future was dissected as the issue’s sophomore theme. Of the many stories explored, this issue covers everything from the rise of the NFL, how data is redefining the way we consume the game, Fox Sports’ Cleatus, Tom Brady’s undying quest for immortality, the international voices growing the sport abroad, to the women who are spearheading the law and order of the gridiron. The issue also features interviews with Super Bowl champion Chris Godwin, the multidisciplinary studio PLAYLAB, southern rapper YGTUT, as well as contemporary fashion label Our Legacy.
Forth + Back created the name and identity for the Journal and provided art direction and editorial design for both the first and second issues. The studio also designed a capsule collection of promotional goods and clothing for the premier release with this issue’s Halftime artist Pete Sharp.
