Leeds consultancy Elmwood has branded, written and designed England’s bid document for the 2006 World Cup. Unveiled at FIFA headquarters in Zurich on Monday, the 500-page document, in English, French and Spanish details the English football scene in the approach to the millennium. Director of the 2006 campaign Alex McGivan says: ‘The bid document is a vital element of the campaign. It reflects our ability to stage a World Cup and must therefore be of the highest quality.’ Elmwood project director Simon Preece adds: ‘We are passionate about design, but equally passionate about football. As fans ourselves we are dedicated to bringing football home to England.’ A decision by FIFA is expected next July.
The 36-year-old cultural event has a new, reversible campaign identity for this year, which features comic strips that tell different tales depending on which way they are read.
The new events space by Mary Duggan Architects can be adapted with translucent curtains that sweep across the room to mark out different areas.
