London 2012 Unveils Logo


Recommended Posts

Okay, that article contradicts itself.

Sources close to the organisers denied that the adverse public reaction to the logo had forced either a rapid redesign or a decision to speed up the release of further details.

Then two paras later:

The sources said the vast publicity surrounding the logo - albeit much of it negative - had made the image so well-known that organisers could proceed to this next stage more rapidly than previously planned.

So which is it?

This is like politics for the advertising firm and the London Olympic Committee.

They can't say "Ok this sucks...we'll need to start over" because it makes looks them bad.

I mean, that's what they SHOULD say, but they won't.

And yes, I blame the organizers just as much. It always takes a client to make a crappy logo.

It made this week's issue of U.S. News and World Report on page 19. I quote the final paragraph of the story:

The flap threatens to sap public support for the games. Warns brand consultant Shailendra Kumar: "It distracts from its purpose if you've got to defend it." Much less explain it.
