The summer games begin tomorrow. Millions, maybe billions of people all around the world will sit down in front of their television sets for two weeks straight and watch other people be athletic. We’ll get caught up in the back story drama, find ourselves crying over the triumphs of people we had never heard of this time last week, and swell with a patriotic pride that we haven’t felt since, well, the last Olympic Games.
Every two years, we get excited about the opening ceremonies and wall to wall coverage, but as graphic designers, we’re also interested in the logo! Over the years there have been some real winners and some real duds. Today, let’s take a look at the logos of Olympics past. Let’s get a dialog going about this. Which one’s work? Which don’t? Tell us in the comments!
