    This striking new logo for the London 2012 Olympics has been unveiled but what do you think of it?

    It also comes in Blue, green and orange

    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?

    If you squint REALLY hard, you can just about make out that is says

    20
    12

    Which is shite, because it should be easily read and recognisable. Bleeeeagh.

    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
