Designboom: the Look of the 2012 Olympic Games
Great roundup. Love the clever declination in space: seating arrangements, signage solutions, court colours (purple! pink!).
What was memorable and distinctive from Salt Lake city in 2002? Or Syndey in 2000? Vancouver’s games 2 years ago was bland, conservative and forgetful. I do hope that the haters who were firmly against this graphic branding a few years ago when it came out have now seen and realized [or will realize in a week] that: once in context, no it ain’t so bad; i guess being different may be good; sure, it does evoke our times and the host city’s culture; the colors are actually quite fun and lively, etc…
Oh an please stop it about the mascots, yes they have one eye. Have you even seen the atrocity for Atlanta in 1996?
