    London Olympics Logo

    Wow......I thought only Americans were mesmerised (uhhh....needs a z) by flashing colors. :P

    Does anyone mind finding a youtube vid? WARNING: if you are sensitive, don't watch it. It is causing seizures in the UK, and thus, why I brought it up.

    I actually quite like the design of the first one, with the 3 hoops forming the ond in london. Don't like the colour pink used in the official logo.

    Heres a article about the issue: http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2007260155,00.html

    Apparently 27,000 signed to scrap it

    LAWL...that final logo is nothing.

    On the commercial, there's a full 30 seconds of swirling psychedelic colors...blinking.

    A vid would be helpful for full effect

    Can't find any vids of it, and the official website has removed it but the pic is from the ad.

    To be fair, they obviously tried with the Logo, I quite like it anyway!
    And yes, I'm talking about the Official one.

    Enoch was right.

    Quite post-modern. I don't really like the official one, as it's too...

    ...ye. I just don't like it. For a start, it doesn't provide enough initial information, just blocks of colour. It's only after staring at it like a magic eye picture, that you even see the 2012. Heres some past logos for you to look at:
    .

    Those are all plain, simple, recognisable and informative. The official London one is not. Besides, I feel the UK olympic commitee is getting ahead of itself. There's still another olympic event before it even comes close...


    Mail me if you want to add me on either the Wii or the 360.
