Design
Where form meets function

As Paris Saint-Germain continues its quest for global dominance on and off the pitch, the French football giant has enlisted the services of local artist Tyrsa to create a wild typeface for its Jordan Brand Champions League jersey.

To create the alphabet, Tyrsa eschewed modern tools like Photoshop, instead distorting a classic basketball typeface by hand while scanning it. Apt for the first football jersey to rock the Jumpman, the artist’s typeface mixes basketball and football visual codes. Each letter also comes with two variants, allowing the buyer to come up with their own lettering combinations.

Scroll through the gallery below to see how PSG star names such as Mbappé, Neymar, Buffon, and Verrati shape up in the font.

PSG fans could get their hands on jerseys bearing the Tyrsa lettering at the Champs-Élysées Nike store in Paris ahead of the club’s Champions League clash with Napoli last night. There’s no word on whether the typefaces will be made more widely available in future.
