In 2014 Grandson were tasked with designing 'Champ10ns'

– a book commemorating the Dundalk FC league winning season.

We were approached by the same editorial team of local Dundalk journalist – Gavin McLaughlin and eminent sports photographer Ciarán Culligan,to work on this years, 2015 version of the book.

'The Double' is a 280-page book will tell the story of Dundalk FC’s

historic year that ended with Stephen Kenny’s record breaking side crowned SSE Airtricity League champions, FAI Cup winners, Leinster Senior Cup winners and President’s Cup winners.

To try and differentiate the 2014 and 2015 book we created a section

within the book to break the tempo of match reports. Match reaction pieces, where key members of the team and management gave their opinions and views were included in this years book which fleshed out the editorial content and gave a more personal insight into the season and how it all played out.

This also gave us some design freedom to interpret the editorial content and use a more expressive design style for each individual piece – as dictated by the photographic content supplied, along with the tone of the article.
