The Red Dragon
‘Some people believe football is a matter of life and death, I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.’ This is the famous quote from legendary Liverpool manager Bill Shankly. Quite frankly, the word Football has always been replaced by the word Rugby in Wales. After the Welsh team’s untimely exit last weekend at the hands of The French, the outpouring of emotions there has been immense. From a graphic perspective, I feel so reassured in the power of print after seeing the front page of yesterday’s regional Welsh paper, The Western Mail. It summed up a Nation’s mood, at the same time, creating a beautifully clean, typographic statement that no ipad could ever offer. Congratulations are due this publisher and his/her bravery.
