The London Olympics logo

is, uh, interesting



Quote:
Olympics Minister Tessa Jowell said: "This is an iconic brand that sums up what London 2012 is all about - an inclusive, welcoming and diverse Games that involves the whole country.

"It takes our values to the world beyond our shores, acting both as an invitation and an inspiration.

"This is not just a marketing logo, but a symbol that will become familiar, instantly recognisable and associated with our Games in so many ways during the next five years."

That sure is ugly.

It looks like three letters - Z O K.

Maybe they hope all the youngsters will take it up as a new saying. "Man, that London is ZOK, man! Word to your mother."

Yeah you should see it in its full animated glory.........it's so 80's it makes your eyes bleed.

A bit of the video for it has already been pulled, due to it inducing epileptic fits.

Apparently the mess of a logo is gonna change shape over the next couple of years, eventually forming the shape of an athlete.

London, you are out of your mind...

The animated footage of the logo has been removed from the London 2012 Olympic Web site amid claims that it could trigger epileptic seizures.

Of all the creative minds out there, retro or not, this thing is absolutely a steaming heap of crap.

I remember when the contest was on and the countless number of submissions that were shown, there was plenty of suitable designs they could have chosen that were entered by amateurs and professional design houses.

I'm blown away, but at least Vancouver's looks great now compared to London's.

I'm betting with the reaction it is getting that it gets tweaked between now and 2012.

I guess it's supposed to say 2012.
