Barcelona Reveal New Typeface for 15-16 Kits

Barcelona this week released the new Barcelona 2015-16 Home and Away Kits by Nike. The new Nike Barcelona 15-16 Home Jersey boasts hoops for the first time in club history, inspired by the supporters' flags inside the stadium.

With the new Barcelona 15-16 Home Kit going on sale today, another interesting detail about the shirt emerged - Nike and the club designed a new typeface for player names and numbers.

Barcelona 15-16 Kit Font

The new Barcelona 15-16 Home Kits for Andrés Iniesta, Lionel Messi and Luis Suárez, featuring the redesigned typeface.

Barcelona used the previous font, designed by local studio Vasava, for the last three seasons. Inspired by the shapes of La Pedrera, a modernist building in Barcelona by Antoni Gaudí, the Barcelona 2012-15 font appears to have roughly inspired the new Barcelona 15-16 Kit typeface.

The new Barcelona shirt numbers and names boast a more modern and streamlined look, while trying to conserve the very unique look the previous style had.

Additionally to the new font, the player names and numbers on the new Barcelona 15-16 Kits feature a new ventilation system which helps to reduce moisture by utilizing perforated numbers and letters, already seen on the Nike 2014 World Cup kits.
