I chose my entries based on being able to easily identify it with what the associated "product" is, in this case, the Olympics. Baron is quite right with regards to logos needing to be simple to understand on what you're trying to convey. Having small Olympic rings in them isn't helpful, nor does a lack of proper wording (like the city's full name). Artistic, yet messy logos convey too much, they need the words and Olympic rings to stand out. An example is Barcelona F, good and all, but it's hard to see Barcelona or the Olympic rings or even the sub image of the cathedral.

I'm glad Melbourne B and Barcelona G made the cut. Both have grown on me.

Best Logo - Borjomi B (also Best X'mas card design) - 8 points.

Honorable mention - Salzburg F (terribly UNoriginal...but it says something about the city.) - 4 points

The rest are just pretty or semi-pretty concoctions which really DON'T telegraph anything unique to me about the host city at first glance, WITHOUT having to go into the primer.

Ok, so.

1 points- Barcelona E (it's cool but it was my idea first, kidding :P )

2 points- Barcelona G (it's also a good design but not sure of relevance and the colors, does blue, red and yellow have a meaning to Barcelona)

3 points- Borjomi B (great design. but needs a bit more color)

4 points- Harbin A (bit plain but it works)

5 points- Melbourne J (i like the Melbourne references but perhaps they are too subtle and go unnoticed)

6 points- Anchorage E (love it, perhaps needs more color)

7 points- Salzburg E (reminds me of the ski slopes, darker colors would have been great)

8 points- Anchorage B (also reminds me of the ski slopes)

10 points- Melbourne K (Besides your twin and my awesome self it was that only one that reminded me of Melbourne. Didn't understand the others

12 points- Harbin B (just plain awesome)

......hey krow.......its called a bur dude.....get it....BURRRRRRRRRRRR! :lol:

...there's actually a bit more thought behind it than that.......if I make it through the 12 I'll post some more info.

Also, I wanted to say to those who prefer a literal representation of a host city in it's Olympic logo.........that can be very beautiful and iconic, however the artistic expression of a city can be realized in many ways......why limit it to some architectural or other icon, why not expand on peoples perception and even create one?!

I was going to vote too for Melbourne K -- bright colored graphics, good use of negative space -- but all it celebrates is an "ingenious graphic M" -- what do those little diamonds say about the "City"?

Triangular patterns are a theme common in the city's architecture and graphic design.

Melbourne K !


Drat and double drat- forgot about the omission of 9 and 11.

That means losing Borjomi C and Harbin A, and revising the rest to

1: Anchorage B

2: Salzburg E

3: Anchorage H

4: Barcelona G

5: Salzburg D

6: Anchorage G

7: Melbourne F

8: Salzburg B

10: Barcelona E

Et encore, douze points pour ......

so i got a stomach bug and spent all night over the toilet, and not in a kinky sex game way :(

here are my votes at least. melbourne logos were really boring. all about that M.

12 points - harbin c - YES this needs to win.

10 points - melbourne f (love this logo - can i just say it's the most underrated of all the logos this year and i have done absolutely no research to back that up or see how many points it has. it's an M but it's also australia.)

08 points - harbin e

07 points - salzburg a - love the top of this logo. it looks like when i chew through my headphones and can see all the different colored wires, and then i have to stop and get a new pair. baron pointed out that it looks like an SS logo. i like a little danger in my logos. this logo would start biting you in bed and wouldn't even ask. this logo brags that only plastic bags and intruder porn gets him off these days. this logo has a sister and two dogs who died under mysterious circumstances when he was 12.

06 points - salzburg d - looks like a real logo and also i like the innuendo of the twin peaks on athletes' bibs and why is everything i'm writing about sex today?

05 points - melbourne k - it's a sexy M but it's still just an M and what's the v at the bottom supposed to be? he probably should have said because you really don't want my mind to wander about things like this.

04 points - melbourne c - pretty clever. previously i had santiago C here but i changed it after talking myself out of it. i like the shapes. my name starts with S so this could be my own personal logo. i voted for a lot of logos with S in them come to think of it, and then said how uncreative all those Ms were (except of course puppy's, which pointed out the hypocrisy of the "not for profit" IOC with its corporate sponsors that basically run the show. probably the most raw creativity of the entire competition.)

03 points - borjomi b

02 points - salzburg e - i don't even like this logo but getting to 10 is really hard.

01 points - melbourne b - i guess that port philip bay explanation was sort of convincing.
