To enhance their performance, athletes need the right shoes, gear, equipment, and branding to help them reach new limits on and off the pitch. Behind every athlete and sporting competition is an army of designers working on stadium design, posters, logos, gear, and tech to ensure success in each competition.

Qatar’s leading athlete Mutaz Essa Barshim talks about the important role design has played in his career and how design in sports is responding to global concerns such as pandemics, sustainability, and inequality.

The podcast is moderated by artist and content creator, Mohammed Abdulla Alhamadi.
