Olympics/Paralympics

Olympic logos from 1924 to 2012

  • Interesting when you see all the logos side by side how similar some of them look (hello Barcelona and Sydney) and how design has evolved. Munich (in a good way) and London (let’s say interesting) really stand out for doing their own thing. Sadly I don’t think London will stand the test of time.  As i’ve previously mentioned, to me it is the comic sans of Olympic logos.
