The Fighting Cock has worked with acclaimed animator October Jones and CALM to produce a video called Call CALM. Please watch. Please share.

Love the shirt. Design the shirt.

Every summer you go through the same emotion of anti-climax when Spurs unveil the new home/away shirts. “What the frig is that yellow streak of p*ss doing there?” “Red? Whaaa?!” “It’s too plain” “Is that a sash ffs!” And so forth. What can you do about it? Nothing. But you can do something about another shirt that is about to go into production the moment you get your creative juices flowing. We of The Fighting Cock have partnered with Menace Sports – and American sportswear manufacturer with ties in England that have already kitted out a variety of US based... Read more »

New Logo

You would think creating a new logo would be difficult. A time consuming and expensive thing to do probably. The Olympic 2012 logo, you know the one that looks like Lisa Simpson is performing felatio on her brother, or sick, took months to do and cost £400,000. That isn’t a joke, or tabloid hyperbole, that’s fact. £400k. That’s four Jimmy Greaves and change. The Fighting Cock logo took a few days. And didn’t cost us anything. This is down to two factors. 1.
