The programme cover for last week’s game between Glasgow Rangers FC and Tirol Innsbruck was designed by Pointsize Associates. The cover is the most recent in a series commissioned by the Glasgow Development Agency, which is overseeing the design of all Glasgow and Rangers European home-leg programme covers this season. Pointsize senior designer Nicky Regan, working to an open brief, wanted to capture ‘the feeling of the excitement, history and tradition’ of the club. She used a blurred photograph printed on to the club’s yellow and green identity colours (right) to create the effect, and clean, uncluttered typography to give a contemporary feel. The programme cover for Rangers’ last game (left), was by 999 Design Group. Designs for the other European home-leg programme covers are being spread between a mix of local agencies.
