A new shirt launch is a big moment for a football club. That badge means everything to passionate football fans.
So Nike asked us to come up with an identity to help promote the launch of the 2017/2018 Sporting de Gijón kit. Something that really spoke to the way the fans saw themselves.
We partnered with Nike and the great team at Binalogue in Madrid to position Sporting de Gijón as a team. And then to create a line in Spanish to encapsulate that feeling.
Together we developed La union nos hace fuertes (literal translation ‘the union makes us strong’).
This encapsulates the proud history and optimistic future of the club. This line then formed part of a series of online art pieces to promote the launch.
Paul is a true wordsmith. He is never satisfied with ‘good enough.’ It was a pleasure to work with—and be inspired by—someone constantly seeking experts and experiences to hone his craft.

Everything you could ask for. On brief, on time and always looking to improve the work. Highly recommended.

Straight away, we saw Craft’s work ethic and can-do attitude. There have been many big projects where we needed support and this took a lot of weight off our shoulders and meant we could concentrate on more strategic decisions driving the projects.
Digital & Content Marketing Manager, Security & Safety Things
It was a pleasure to work with Paul. His great collaborative mindset and professionalism push the deliverable to the next level. He’s a great content strategist, writer and thinker who asks insightful questions to push the design. I’ve never worked with a writer who influences design so much.
Director, Frog Design
Paul is one of the most insightful writers I’ve worked with. He’s a strong and proactive creative whose infectious enthusiasm and forethought have driven many global campaigns to success. I couldn’t recommend Paul more highly.
Executive Creative Director, Huge
Paul exemplifies the best elements in a writer: he’s constantly looking for inspiration, and maintains a childlike sense of wonder for new things. His appetite for all things literary is humbling and he’s the nicest guy you’ll ever meet.

Paul & Robert at Craft Copywriting patiently worked with us to have a deep understanding of our history, our purpose, our values, our successes and failures. They then translated that work into authentic stories and positioning which truly reflect who we are. We are very grateful to work with them.
Paul just gets it. He elevates content to the next level. He’s a talented writer, creative and a very clever communicator. And he’s great to work with – hard working, passionate and extremely humble.
