That's pretty bad.

I'm not a fan of our 2010 logo:

I think our candidacy logo was so much better, and really represented Vancouver better:
Insert something interesting here

It really does, like from 1986, or something. As a child of the 80s, I don't really want to go back there anytime soon. Are there no new ideas?

That looks pretty cool actually, and gives a nod to the Inuit peoples and history from that region.

Though there is that inukshuk(a cairn or stone marker for those that don't know) at English Bay in Vancouver, the argument by some people(and not myself) is that the inukshuk is representative of people that live at least some 1800 miles north of Vancouver, and perhaps a local aboriginal design would have been preferable. Either way anything beats that London design.

^I see. I was thinking of the one I saw in Stanley Park, where I also saw nice local designs.

Does it come with the dude pinned to it like some butterfly specimen???? 'Cause that's the only way to distract from the fact that it's butt-ugly!!!

My thoughts exactly . You know in science classes at school how whenever you'd watch a video it was always a really ancient one from 1982 where everyone looked like a teenage Sharon Watts?...perhaps that was just my school...anyway that's what this video reminds me of, the title sequence from one of those vids.

They should've just held a nationwide competition in all the schools or something. It'd have been cheaper and the winner would've looked a heck of a lot better than this!

I got a sex ed video with a similar type of opening sequence 5 years ago, which immediately went into a woman giving birth in all it's most miraculous creation of life detail...i'm afraid it is all I can think of when I see the logo

On another note the BBC really, really need to update their educational materials.....

Anywho....This is what happens when something is produced by is supposed to be youthful, get the young ones into sport...hard to do when it already looks so dated.

From wikipedia:

"The free newspaper London Lite, in its 5 June edition, printed a text from a reader pointing out the resemblance of the logo to Lisa Simpson performing oral sex. Numerous sources reported similar remarks being posted on blogs or article comments, while other sources described it as resembling a "broken window", "hip-hop graffiti" and even a "distorted swastika"."

It's actually growing on me, if that's possible. As long as it's the red version and not the electric pink one.
