This was my winning submission to the illustration contest of Tschutti Heftli for the Euro 2016 in France.

Tschutti Heftli is a special swiss collectors sticker album, all teams are designed by illustrators.

The task was to convince the jury with a portrait of the french legend Zinédine Zidane.

To separate myself from the others, I decided not to create just another nice vector illustration,
so I was searching for something, rough, energetic, fast and not so clean.
I think this is what football is about.
So after seeing a few great typographic images with glitches and distortion, I wondered if I could
adapt some of these elements into a portrait.

After my Illustration was selected, i got the opportunity to illustrate 11 players of the slovakian national football team, their trainer plus an individual coat of arms.
