Rio 2016 Logo


Recommended Posts

I do hope that they change the colour palette. The current one has the tendency to blend in and disappear into the landscape, especially in venues that have more greenery. Rio has the spectacular setting; now it needs colours that will pop out of the scenery yet somehow not compete with it and enhance the overall appearance of the metropolis.

Thanks for posting that slideshow, Kendegra. The PanAms 2007 look is great. And I just realized this: my current bedsheets look similar to the PanAms 2007 logo/birds motif:

I guess I should have seen that as a sign that Rio will win last week. :lol:

For the 2016 logo, I want to see colours! I want to see Brazilian fauna and flora! I want to see diversity! I do NOT want to see sugarloaf and the sun, nor the Christ.

A peafowl would represent both Colors and Carnaval of Rio. And the Brazilian flowers could bring freshness to the logo!

I wanted to meet the person that will design this logo. He would be crazy in my presence.

As designer, I'll draw my opinion for Rio 2016. I'll post it soon.

Do you remeber those logos I made, joking, on Madrid 2020, Chicago 2020 and Tokyo 2020???

Where will you guys place the competition thread? At the general olympic forum?

All fantasy competition has been taken place in the GamesBid.com Events and Meetings part (in the General and Olympic Off Topic part) - at the moment a competition about the Commonwealth Games 2022 takes place - the previous one was very interesting, too: the 2020 inappropriate host olympic competition - very interesting to read!!

CTR is too religious to be used, and the mountains are too panoramic.

I would like to see a plain and simple interpretation of the sun. Rio is known first as a beautiful beach city and its citizens practically live the sunshine year-round. Caue was a great pan-am mascot in this way.

They could add color too, like this album cover (I have this CD, great Album by the way)

I like this reference too to bring some modernity through the use of colours.

And BTW, indeed, this a good album...

what do you think about this one - I did it for fun (but I am not an artist)

I would try not to make use of too many "visual jargons" to try to comunicate what Rio has and the World doesn't know yet...

Also, need to be careful about the usage of the Sugar Loaf mountains. Your idea is too similar to one of the biggest supermarket brands here in Brazil:

well - I think my logo is quite nice, but I am aware too that it is too much detailed...

I'll go there later when I come back from the gym! Very interesting! So excited if the 2016 logo fantasy competition really takes place!

Could anyone plz explain me this logo.. I kno those are birds but I can't see the birds, weird figures!!!

Take the green birds as the main one (for our explanation).

See that above the bird, you have the shape of Sugar Loaf montain, in the top of the bird you have the shape of Corcovado Mountain, the bottom left and the bottom right remember slightly the shape of Rio de Janeiro shore.

And the rest of the curves also remember some hills in Rio de Janeiro shore...

Then, they repeated the birds as the message of different people, from different cultures in Rio de Janeiro.

I think this logo is more beautifull than have a clever message...
