Just a game? Soccer as a
Mirror of Society

“Apenas Um Jogo? O Futebol Como Um Espelho da Sociedade” (Just a Game? Soccer as a Mirror of Society) is the thesis project by Lucas Tomazzelli, for his undergraduate course in journalism at São Paulo University (USP).

The challenge of this project was to create an editorial layout with an eye-catching visual identity, which helps to potentialize not only the intellectual content but also the hands-on experience.

Lucas, a soccer lover, brings in this thesis project the idea that soccer can be compared to a microcosm of the society in which it is inserted. In each chapter, comparative discussions of several social problems and reports from characters who lived in specific situations are presented.
