Logo has been launched.

So so ugly, very unprofessional

I find some of the top 10 much better than the final logo.

I disagree, I don't think any of those top 10 look particularly slick, professional or well balanced. The final logo, whilst not at all groundbreaking (Barcelona, Sydney, Beijing, Singapore) is well proportioned and slickly designed. I quite like it. It's as inoffensive as you could imagine, but it at least looks professional.

Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games Logo





10 January 2009 – The Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games logo was officially

launched today by Dr Vivian Balakrishnan, Minister for Community Development,

Youth and Sports.

Spirit of Youth – the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games logo – celebrates

Singapore 2010 in an adventurous, open and fun way. It evokes the Singaporean

sense of confidence and progress. A red flame represents the passion to learn

and the power of positive thinking. A purple star symbolises excellence and the

pride of representing one’s nation. A crescent reflects dynamic youth, full of

promise. The active appearance of the “Singapore 2010” word mark comprises

individual and unique characters that signify harmony among the diverse

participants. The Spirit of Youth inspires all of us to express the Olympic spirit

and celebrate the first-ever Youth Olympic Games.

“The launch of the logo today is a major milestone for the Singapore 2010 Youth

Olympic Games,” said Mr NG Ser Miang, Chairman of the Singapore Youth

Olympic Games Organising Committee (SYOGOC). “The logo is an important

symbol of the inaugural Youth Olympic Games. It embodies the vision of

Singapore 2010 - Inspiring Youth, Sporting Singapore, and expresses the

significance and legacy that we hope Singapore 2010 will have on the lives of

Singaporeans and youths around the world before, during and after the Games.”

The Singapore 2010 logo was launched at the CAN! event at the Singapore

Management University Campus Green. CAN! stands for Create Action Now and

is a call on youths to be part of Singapore 2010. The event was put together by

students from the Nanyang Technological University, the National University of

Singapore, the Singapore Institute of Management and the Singapore

Management University.

The day-long event was packed with fun-filled activities ranging from the CAN!

Run, a non-competitive 2010 metres run in the heart of the city to celebrate

Singapore 2010; CAN! Play, a carnival featuring sports try-outs for wrestling,

handball, modern pentathlon and a 3-on-3 basketball competition; as well as

CAN! Party, a concert featuring youth talents and local artistes.

Adding to the anticipation and excitement of the day was a launch mechanism,

measuring 7.6 metres by 2.5 metres and with a depth of two metres, specially

devised to launch the logo. A combination of mechanism, featuring all the Youth

Olympic Games sports, was triggered by mechanical means and saw 26 nimble

and rapid transitions under one minute and 50 seconds. A timer then lit up and

led the crowd to count down to the unveiling of the logo.

The launch mechanism was created by a group of Nanyang Technological

University students from the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering,

the School of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, and the School of Art, Design

and Media who had worked under the guidance of their supervisors.

Mr GOH Kee Nguan, Chief Executive Officer of SYOGOC, said “The logo launch

event today shows how young people can come together and be part of

Singapore 2010. I am encouraged by the passion that these youths have for

Singapore 2010. They made this event possible and they have done an

excellent job!”

The logo is very similar to the logos Singapore govt created every year for their National Day Parade. They all somehow have a similar look, esp the usage of stars which is on the Singapore flags. Here's some examples from their previous NDP logos
