    As an Englishman, I can safely say that logo brings great dishonour to our country.

    Seriously. That's just a pile of crap. I could do better. -.-

    It's not memorable, it's not snappy, it's hard to read...

    I wonder how many millions this cost?

    That's not a fair comparison, because that was just the logo for Paris's campaign, it would almost certainly have been different for the event itself.

    London's campaign logo was different:



    Still, I can't believe they chose this as the actual logo for the games. It's bad. x_x But Olympic logos usually do look pretty rubbish IMO, so it isn't too unusual. The only one I remember liking was Barcelona.

    Aww fuck it's weird !! Call me pervy minded, but it looks like a woman kneeling to suck the lower region of a guy holding her head in position !! It wouldn't surprise me from English artists...

    I really prefer the one GrimaH found !!

    I doubt we have many millions left for the IOC to spend since the cost has gone up six-fold to ?12 million

    I mean why do we always fuck things up. I seriously hope that they change it
     
  27. Id like to see you guys do better

    How they decided on the logo
