Launched in 2021, the lush and chunky Spiral is an annual publication fusing American football, great graphic design and football culture. Following the first issue themed 'Tribalism', their boldly-blue sophomore edition is all about the 'Future':
'The future is always rooted in a sort of fantasy — a utopia that is both a promise and a lie — depending on which member of society you ask. Football, like the country that birthed it, has always reflected both these polarities. Issue II promptly uses this premise as a jumping-off point to tackle what the future of football could hold.'
