ShopTalk/DEPT® designs game changing NFTs for Southampton FC

Agencies: ShopTalk Dept


Southampton FC recently launched three unique NFTs inspired by its kit design, making Saints the first-ever Premier League club to launch an NFT of its kit designs.

The NFTs were created by London-based design and brand studio ShopTalk/DEPT®, and suggest a new, alternative way that NFTs can offer value.

“Southampton’s NFT strategy focuses on brand awareness and fan connection rather than novelty,” explains James Wood, co-founder and Creative Director at ShopTalk/DEPT®. Each of the three NFT kits on auction is wholly unique, and the three fans who are lucky enough to snag one will also a receive an IRL limited-edition version of the kit – connecting the NFT to a real world item.

“By connecting the NFT kit to a real one, Southampton have created a necessary bridge between digital investment and a meaningful physical item,” says Wood. “It’s a bold move that signals an evolution in how football can bring real value to fans using emerging technology.”

This professional campaign titled 'ShopTalk/DEPT® designs game changing NFTs for Southampton FC' was published in United Kingdom in August, 2022. It was created by ad agencies: Dept and ShopTalk. This Design medium campaign is related to the Sports industry and contains 10 media assets. It was submitted almost 2 years ago by Account Executive: Elisha Bautista of Red Setter Agency.
