Rio 2016 Look of the Games


Recommended Posts

"We had a problem with the supplier. They're late. Some of the Look fo the Games will be installed later. We have a task force. We're working 24 hours. Some things will be installed later," said the operationals director of the Organizing Committee of Rio-2016.

The material came late to the country, imported from Eastern Europe for economy, and therefore being last minute placed on the venues. The Committee also believes that everything will be ready.

It is not the World Cup band on the upper deck. It is the band used by the local government to dress the stadium.

Holy crap. You know the organization of this game really blows if they can't even get simple stuff like the Look done. But i'm sure they're going to try to defend this somehow. 

At least the Volleyball arena looks great.

thin poorly constructed rings

There are several sets of low quality thin Olympic Rings in the park and a few places. They look thin, insubstantial, and poorly made. Obviously just a cost saving measure but this should not be allowed. They also used some low quality off-the-shelf galvanized silver posts to mount them, of course this all seems so petty but for the Olympic Games one expects top quality, this is a new standard I think or didn't notice it in past games. Perhaps as part of Agenda 2020 there is a loosening of oversight on detail like this.

The Rio 2016 wordmark/font is incredible, fantastic looking wherever it appears. Love it with the look infill. Everything else so far....meh.

The pictograms with the infill looks cool too. I guess the look-blob is so generic looking on panels, banner etc.....it works better as a secondary layer inside other shapes.

...it's interesting we have not seen the 2016 moto anywhere, i don't even remember it.
