Sport 2 Racket is a collaborative fanzine dedicated to “racket sports and street culture”, designed by Toulouse-based designer Paul Bouigue. Interspersed within the zine’s short articles are photographs and illustrations all seemingly focused around ping pong and other table-top, racket-based sports.
There’s also fun, lighthearted spreads with a spot the difference, advice and other odd, but charming pieces. The project allows Paul to explore his love of graphic design, by experimenting with layout, typography and graphic visuals. The colour palette is a pleasing mix of court-inspired greens and reds and Paul has shot the project creatively with accompanying ping pong balls.
Throughout his work Paul says he tries to offer a dialogue between design and user and in this case, the personal fanzine gives insight into a topic relatively ignored by other publications and zines.
