    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.

    The BBC ran a competition to design a better one and within 1 hour someone submitted their entry...... I'll let you guess which is which

    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.

    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.

    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...

    Again, it's very simple, very different to this crappy 2012 one =/

    It cost £400,000 for that flashing piece of crap!! I hope someone gets their P45!

    I like the BBC Competition once, scrap the slogan and it has my vote.

    And this is what i pay my taxes for. £400,000 to design, now all the artifacts with the old logo on will be binned. Nice to know I work and pay for that. :mad5:

    What bothers me more is they had a logo for the bid. What is wrong with just keeping that one? :shocked:


    What makes it worse is I'm from Manchester, any where north of Watford is NOT going to benefit from the Olympics. :sick:
