If you read our blog regularly, you'll know about our work with the very clever John O'Shea to develop an identity for his latest project, PBF. In a nutshell, John is reviving the traditional skill of creating footballs out of pig's bladders. The creation of these balls are then and situated within a wider context of competition, fanaticism and bio-science.
As part of the AND Festival, (launching this Thursday) 84 Bold Street (opposite LEAF) in Liverpool will be transformed into an Organic Football Boutique. (30th September - 2nd October 11am-6pm).
As well as an opportunity to get up close to some of the finished footballs, there's also an opportunity to get your hands dirty.
