RIP King: A Tribute to Pelé

Published Jan 4, 2023

The news of the passing of legendary Brazilian football player Pelé has sent shockwaves around the world.

‘The King’ is widely regarded as the greatest footballer of all time, and his moniker became an adjective for someone’s excellence and breathtaking skill.

Although Edson Arantes do Nascimento has left us, Pelé’s legacy and impact will live on forever. A national hero and the only player to win three World Cups, he brought joy to the game and transformed football into art, making his mark on the world and putting Brazil on the map.

The outpouring of grief from artists and designers around the world demonstrates just how much he meant to everyone in Brazil, and beyond.

This is a tribute to the greatest of all time. Rest in peace, King Pelé.
