Deroy Peraza from Hyperakt has been working on a follow-up project to the World Cup poster they published in 2010. The Champions Ring is a huge set of sports championships visualizations using radial brackets. The collection features 427 radial brackets (and counting) for the big 5 major leagues in the United States (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL, MLS), the Football (read Soccer) Champions League, the Euro and the World Cup. Fine art prints of the posters can be ordered on demand from Curioos.
You just got to love the effort and inspiration Pereza put into this project:
I’ve loved sports since I was a little kid. It wasn’t just that I loved the games, I loved the numbers, the history and the team colors. I spent endless hours memorizing stats and drawing interpretations of team logos. I dreamed of being able to see the history of sports, and each team’s legacy within it, at a glance. I’ve granted my 10-year-old self that wish with The Champions Ring.
