  1. This has to be the most anonymous Look since... the invention of Looks. The decorations at the venues look shockingly generic.
  2. It's not too bad. There's a nice balance here: the snowflakes bring interest in tight, close shots and the big hangul characters break things up enough in wider shots. Could use with a little more texture and color combos, but it's a solid Look.
  3. Maybe that's the point? Vibrancy created by lack of consistency in color. There definitely seems to be less branding at Rio's venues. Is the border around the velodrome track just going to remain plain orange?
  4. I wouldn't even refer to bid renderings as "promises". They're just renderings.
  5. Sorry, but is this suppose to be surprising?
  6. It's very dated looking, isn't it? The 64 logo looks much more contemporary than this one. It's interesting that Rio and Tokyo have played it so safe. It's almost as if they were really frightened by the way London ditched the old formula and the negative reaction to that. I still adore London's insistence to create a branded mark and contain all the elements within itself. These formulaic emblem-over-city-over-rings logos have all looked boring since.
  7. From what I understand, the Greeks opposed the idea of building completely temporary venues out of principle. They figured the birthplace of the Games should not do that. Someone please correct me if this wasn't the case. Still, it boggles my mind that permanent venues for beach volleyball and softball were built.
  8. The atmosphere seemed a bit stunted in comparison to other Games and you got the sense that a small country was doing something beyond their means... But Athens 2004 really was a beautifully executed Games. The ceremonies, venues, and Look were top-tier in Olympic history. The glowing Aegean sun… the curling Aegean waves and blue waters… the green of olive orchards… the bright fucsia of bougainvillea flowers… ancient Greek vase patterns… stunning.
  9. The bidding process has always generally bored my face off. It's the sexy and dramatic hostings that have kept me interested. But that's me.
  10. This is quite easily the best World Cup I've ever seen. Incredibly excited for Rio 2016 now and I'm confident Brazil will be able to pull it off wonderfully, if only with some bumps and bruises before and during.
  11. I feel like local people everywhere never like ****. Logos, stadiums, entire Olympics.
  12. Except orange and blue is already being used as much as yellow and green so your point goes nowhere.
  13. Oh yes, I've been watching that series. It's really great, though grossly centered on American stories. I hope a full broadcast cut of the 2000 lighting is upload again soon. And I can't find a good one of Athens' anymore either. Shame not to have those two easily accessible.
