PGMOL Commemorative Book

A special commemorative book showcasing the FA and EFL referees 2019/20 & 2020/21 football seasons.

What we did

128 Page Commemorative Book

Our brief

Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) is the body responsible for match officials in English professional football. PGMOL hold an annual conference and wanted to produce a commemorative book to showcase images and achievements from the 2019/20 and 2020/21 football seasons.

How we did it

We designed several layouts using large hero shots of the match officials and the competitions they had refereed that year. These spreads feature a montage style of action shots, the club crests and small accent graphics to create a layered and dynamic style. The design also includes small icon based textured patterns to represent the formations, positions and technical measurements associated with football and refereeing. We assigned a main colour for each double page spread but alternated this using a range of 6 complimentary colours to give each spread a different look.

The front and back cover is GF Smith Colorplan on a thick 350gsm premium uncoated paper. We also went with a gloss white foil which is slightly debossed when applied with a little extra pressure to give the logos a dull satin sheen, this adds a real mark of quality and sophistication to the book.

This book is something that will be a keepsake for the referees, some of which have since retired, so it needed to convey a sense of achievement, emotion, dedication and resilience over a 2 season period which were particularly hard years due to the global pandemic.
