International Rugby Board (IRB)




2001, 2002, 2003


Coast scored a double for the Rugby World Cup in 2003: we won the IRB (International Rugby Board) contract to design all the official graphics for the tournament and we were also appointed by the ARU (Australian Rugby Union) to co-ordinate and manage their diverse design needs as the Host Union. A palette of warm reds and gold created a more Australian feel while silhouettes of rugby players added dynamism to the ‘kit of parts’.


"Professional and creative but with a regard for practicalities and cost…we would have no hesitation in using Coast Design for future services." Matt Carroll, General Manager, Rugby World Cup 2003
