For this April Fools day 2019, I thought it might be a nice opportunity to show how the world of soccer ball designers have trolled soccer ball pedants (like me).
My first blog post described five mistakes to avoid when drawing a soccer ball. Well designers of actual soccer balls don’t play by the rules. Look and decide for yourself to see if these designs deserve a red card.
Me: Don’t put a mishmash of polygons all over the place
Adidas: You can’t tell me what to do.
Me: Color the hexagons white, and the pentagons black.
Admiral: You can’t tell me what to do.
Me: Don’t make a soccer ball with only hexagons
Also me: You can’t tell me what to do.
Me: Make sure you have that pentagon to pentagon bridge.
Nike: You can’t tell me what to do.
