AC Milan’s glorious history stretches back almost 120 years. We were challenged with creating the next chapter. Inspired by this illustrious past but focused on future glory, we designed an AC Milan for a new, diverse generation of proud Rossoneri.
Inspired by the illustrious heritage but focused on future glory, we have designed an AC Milan for a new, diverse generation of proud Rosseneri, building a new identity based upon Milan’s core values of teamwork, excellence, passion and elegance.
‘Milan to Many’ – a manifesto that embodies the club values and encapsulate the spirit of the club. This is rationalised into one line – and new purpose: Sempre Milan, evoking the values and reinforcing the Italian heritage. It is the unifying rallying cry for proud Rosseneri to get behind – no matter where they are in the world.
The identity celebrates the club’s iconic badge as a symbol of unity – a beating heart that connects millions. Fans and footballing gods have been kissing the club’s famous badge for a century. Respecting this heritage, we left the design untouched and used the iconic oval shape to tell powerful stories. Equally at home online, in the San Siro or plastered across the city, the consistent graphic language gives the club a strong voice to connect with fans.
The brand’s new design language takes cues from fashion, lifestyle and Italian culture. A rich, attitude driven motion and typographic system gives voice to the spirit of AC Milan, and art direction creates a more immediate and accessible feel.
We partnered with type designer Elliott Amblard to develop and craft ‘Milan Pulse Inline’ – a bespoke display typeface for AC Milan. Taking cues from fashion, lifestyle brands and Italian culture, we created a bold yet elegant typographic system. Instantly recognisable, it captures the passion Milan fans have for their club.
