From Ipswich to Inter Milan: Football stadiums from above

London design studio Planning Unit has spent over a decade creating graphic representations of football stadiums from above – a side project that has led to a Tumblr site, a collection of prints and a commission from Nike

Jeff Knowles is the founder of London design studio Planning Unit and an Everton FC fan. Around 12 years ago, he came up with the idea to create a series of prints depicting English football stadiums from above.

“It just sort of popped into my head. There was a lot of football fan art around, but [most of] it was all very highly Photoshopped or quite technical … and I just thought, ‘is there a way to strip it back to the bare minimum?'” he says.
