Beautiful Visualisations of World Cup Nicknames


We’re less than 24 hours away from the start of the 2014 World Cup, and as an office we couldn’t be more excited (although admittedly that goes for some more than others!).

As a result we’ve been keeping a keen eye out for quality content around the World Cup Finals, and we’ve even produced our own piece of content, visualising England’s World Cup history. We also came across these fantastic pieces from Brazilian artist Cristiano Siqueira,¬†who was commissioned by ESPN to create posters for all 32 teams competing in this year’s World Cup.

So if you’ve ever been curious about World Cup nicknames, these posters have you covered:
