“A stadium, more than any other building type in history, has the ability to shape a town or city. A stadium is able to put a community on the map, establishing an identity and providing a focal point in the landscape.” - Rod Sheard

Being a sports fan and also an architecture and urbanism lover, I’ve always been drawn to stadium aesthetics. Not only for their atmospheres or for the games played within (although they go hand in hand), but also by the structures and shapes, whether elliptical, oval, rectangular, U-shaped or the shape of a nest… stadiums somehow remind me of majestic medieval castles.

World of Stadiums is a series I’ve been working on for the past months, although a few of the drawings were done a few years ago. The series consists of sixty stadiums, mainly from Europe and North America, and also some iconic grounds from other parts of the World.

The postcards

The size of the cardboard box is 5.90 x 3.93 inch (15 x 10 cm). The postcards will be printed on 350g cardboard and on the back there will be some basic infos for every stadium card (capacity, opening, tenant)

The prints

There are two sizes for the prints. One is smaller: 8.27 x 11.69 inches (21.0 x 29.7cm) printed on hahnemühle paper. The other is a poster size print 23.62 x 15.87 inches (60 x 40.3 cm) printed on 200g offset paper. The frame is not included!

Ebook

The e-book comes in an epub format which is compatible on IOS aswell as on Android. This incluedes all the 60 stadiums. The logo in the right corner function as an info button which shows some basic information about the stadiums.

So, I hope you enjoy this project and help me bring it to life. If you want to know more about my work as an illustrator check out my website: www.kolehel.com

Thank you!

Risks and challenges

The postcards are ready to be printed, the ones you see in the promo video and the product pictures are prototypes, printed digitally. To produce them this way is very costly.. Thats why i would like to print them with offset printig. The quality is the same (or even better) and the price is more reasonable, but it's only possible to print it this way if you print a bigger amount. So thats why i started this Kickstarter project.
I dont see any obstacles, if anything unexpected comes up, i will let you know on time.
