World Cup 2018

Martin Haake has illustrated a stylized map of Russia for FIFA magazine showing all stadiums of The World Cup, 2018. We love the cut out shapes and sketchy details paired with the endearing sense of scale and perspective. Let's be honest - with a Goal keeper that large, noone will be scoring any goals!
