New brand for Qatar’s 2022 Fifa bid
Doha, June 10, 2010
UK-based Lambie-Nairn, a leading branding and design consultancy, has created a new identity system for Qatar’s 2022 bid for the Fifa World Cup.
“In order to generate the support required for a successful bid, the brand needs to communicate these unique benefits on a national Qatari level to generate support,” said Christian Schroeder, CEO of Lambie-Nairn.
“On a regional level, it needs to secure the backing of its neighbours in an underdeveloped football region, and perhaps most importantly, providing FIFA with the opportunity of continuing its strategy of bringing the World Cup to the world,” he added.
Qatar 2022 sets out to be a completely new type of World Cup; compact for the benefit of the fans and the environment, customised to the interests of the teams and the promise to create a strong legacy for the sport in the entire region.
In addition, it will be the first time the Fifa World Cup will come to the Middle East, a region brimming with sporting potential.
Supplied with a simple logo, Lambie-Nairn has created an identity system that is flexible to keep work fresh as it’s realised across hundreds of applications and a broad media mix.
Drawing inspiration from the youthful vibrancy of the Arab state and the passion and energy of football, the extensive identity includes a suite of bold football illustrations, dynamic photographs, bespoke calligraphy, a newly commissioned font and a world of colours and textures that standout both on-screen and in print.
The work has made the shortlist of Lambie-Nairn entries into the corporate identity category of Cannes Lions 2010. – TradeArabia News Service
