Eighth Annual GamesBids Olympic Logo Design Contest **Official thread/Fil officiel**

Recommended Posts

Needs more color and a little zing to lift it. If the Games are a flop, they'll say "it was too well anchored." The logo needs to fly.

I'll see what I can do. Thanks for the suggestions!

I don't know if this is appropriate because this is use of another persons logo...?

and both of the logos he entered appear here,

... side by side, most likely where they were ripped from.

I definitely object to this.

where the two are displayed side by side.

Bit stuck on what else to add. I know it looks like it was drawn by a 5 year old but i'm not an inkscape expert and i'm not fond of cheating...

Meant to be mountains and then upside down mountains... don't ask.

If you'd like, I can help out. I'm not great at freehand curves, but when it comes to simple lines, I can help translate it into inkscape, add rings/text, etc. Just send me a PM.

The golden 'arches' symbolise the entry point to Melbourne - the Bolte Bridge and the West Gate. they also symbolise large hills - not mountains as Melbourne doesn't really have any of those. The 'M' shape also symbolises Moorabin and Marybyrnong where the new sports precincts will be built.

This is a completely new concept in sports branding - a really TOP effort I believe.

Here's my North-Star inspired Anchorage logo, it took me a long time to make and is really groundbreaking in the Olympic design world. I have never seen anything like it before.

Okay, I've re-done my Melbourne 2022 Logo, if someone can get rid of the black rough edges then I shall be grateful...

This time, I've used pastel colours and made transparent circles, the mountains form an M too.

I'd get rid of the pointless A in a circle and put a horizontal white line two thirds of the way up the green mountain to create the A as part of the logo.

Then maybe get rid of the lines top and bottom, and make the coloured triangles graded (easy to do in Inkscape).

Here is my official Anchorage logo, I did use the Chicago Star design to portray the north star. The colors and gradient are inspired by the Aurora Borealis. I do not have a motto yet, but I was thinking either "Paint the Sky" or "Color the World" would be good. So without further ado, I present Anchorage 2022:
