I just across this video which I think is silly, but does present something to think about when it comes to design. I actually liked her reaction to the London emblem. She interpreted it as something exciting and vibrant, which is what I think London was trying to do. Anyway, here's the video. Here's link if embed doesn't work:
Have you ever come across the logo of a company, organization, or office that made you think, "Heh, that would make a great Olympic logo"? For those who have participated in the logo design comps, what about those logos that have inspired you? This post was inspired by drawing the similarity of the Tokyo 2020 emblem with the Théâtre de Liège logo. Share those designs that you've come across and tell us why you think they'd make a good games logo for any particular city or time.
