The Balls May Be Small, But the Stakes Are Huge


As the days grow shorter our attention turns to 6th Avenue and the home of the most important design event of all time: The fourth annual World Graphic Design Foosball Championship will be held in New York City on Friday, November 18.

Although the competition is usually waged at the offices of karlssonwilker and Paul Sahre (conveniently located right on top of each other), this year the tournament committee (conveniently consisting of tournament supervisor Paul Sahre, tournament treasurer Hjalti Karlsson and tournament treasurer supervisor Jan Wilker) has decided to expand the brackets by starting the competition at three additional venues (the somewhat convenient Pentagram, Type Directors Club and Number 17). The final rounds and ensuing frat-like party will still take place at the original karlssonwilker/Paul Sahre location. Trust us: Bring your own beer.

Deadline for registration is November 9 and the brackets will be posted November 14. But we suggest you begin coordinating your 70’s-inspired uniforms consisting of iron-on letters pressed on American Apparel clothing now.
