I'll admit up front that when I happened upon Hyperakt's Kickstarter campaign for a 2011/2012 Champions League Radial Bracket Poster, I had no idea what that was. But since I've been a fan of Hyperakt ever since I visited their studio in February, I did some research and realized that the Champions League aka European Cup finals is one of the most watched sporting event in the world. We're coming up on the semifinals next week and predictions are flying over who might take the cup this year.
Hyperakt made a similarly bright radial bracket poster for the 2010 World Cup, which they funded through Kickstarter, too, so now they're back "bringing you a new bracket poster for the awesomest sports tournament in the world: The Champions League!" A $5 pledge gets you a download of the graphic and $20 gets you a limited edition 18" x 24" poster "printed in CMYK plus silver on a heavy bright white uncoated stock." And don't forget to read the disclaimer:
"Now, it's pretty obvious that we're Barça fans, but fear not, we'll update the bracket with the real final results of the tournament before printing. So don't worry Madrid fans, we'll put you in the middle if you manage to beat Barcelona."
The campaign ends April 26th.
