Football Strip Concepts has, in many ways, a lot in common with Forza27. Initially started by designer Angelo Trofa to showcase his own concept strips and designs, the magazine (much like this site) evolved to celebrate graphic design in football and the culture around the kit from many great kit enthusiasts around the globe.

Now in its fifth edition, Football Strip Concepts Volume 5 is looking as good as ever, as well as being the first issue to feature full editorial pieces (see below). Limited to 150 copies, the magazine is excellently laid-out with 80-pages full of exuberant colour, funky typography and of course, great illustration.
Featuring designs for Torpedo Kattenburg, Napoli and FIFA18 plus interviews with 2006 Italy kit designer Rob Warner, illustrator Stan Chow and BeInSport commentator Andres Cordero, this issue also takes an in depth look at a football collective built up of artists changing the landscape of the underground football scene in Paris and the most interesting kit collector on instagram.
Football Strip Concepts Volume 5 is available to buy now here.
Angelo is a designer and illustrator from Bletchley, UK. See more of his work on his website AngeloTrofa.co.uk or on twitter @angt34.
