China 2008 and Athen 2004, both simple, elegant and connotative.
MEXICO CITY 1968
without a doubt the most artistic.
It intensively reflect Chinese culture, including the unique character, stamp, writing brush and calligraphy, as well as art(the character looks like a folk dancer).
Munich 1972: It’s kinetical, simple and complex at the same time, so visual, easy to remember, it has character, and it’s sophisticated.
Colourful and the first to be in 3D.
athens…simple with grace!
is Nagano 1998. The snowflower incorporated the Olympic colors and the different sports within the petals of the flower….Genius!!!
Beijing 2008, simply because it brought forth a simple a elegant design that embodied the vibrant chinese art, culture and history.
Salt Lake City!
Atlanta 1996. Hard to forget.
Mexico 1968, because it merges contemporary art and ethnic references. It’s so simple but catchy, a great brand!
London 2012. Everyone hates it because its vibrant, audacious and irreverant. Not Bauhaus clean lines or too obviously, swooshingly corporate. Give London a break!
1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles
The logo for Chicago’s 2016 Olympic bid. The committee was made to redesign the logo by the IOC, and it’s still awesome.
London is the worst among the logos since 1980′ (sure there are some more ugly logos before 80′)…not artistic at all…
london, because yes
fucking london 2012
is…London 2012 Designed by people who dont care about the people. It is totally rubbish. Where is the connection with what constitutes Britain?
London 2016. No more BJs!
Bland, boring not much to do with the Russian landscape. Why do they have to use a URL as their official logo???
Sochi 2014 and London 2012. As we progress with the Olympic movement, the graphic designs get worse…I hope Rio 2016 turns it around!!!
London, although it would be much better if they at least added some brittish coloring.
London 2012. Looks like it came straight from the 80’s and doesn’t look British at all.
London by far, must have been created by a two year old !
London 2012. it just looks bad.
2012 london. ‘Orrible, it is!
London… by far ! Hideous !
Sochi 2014….What a waste of talented Russian graphic designers!!!
london 2012. I thought it would be really cool, like a shield or a lion, and then i see that someone threw up on the floor. for shame.
Paris 1924. Nice old greek battleship spoiled by clunkily overlaid black type.
2012 London is pure shit!
doesn’t show any graphic aptitude to personate time, place, culture or the spirit of games & Olympic sports(wo)manship
