Having already done a Sheff Wed illustration (via my Chris Waddle poster), I felt it was time to redress the balance and turn my attentions to United (The Blades).
The idea here was to try and replicate the geometric shapes you find at the centre of old school razor blades. I wanted to create them using the names of past players, so that hopefully from distance they just look like normal razor blades but viewed closer you can see the names etc.
The “stainless” logo hints at their “legend” status i.e. untouchable but also gives a nod to Sheffield steel too.
