I like it. Being a regular visitor to Tokyo and knowing it's skyline and the colours of the cityscape it just works. It is industrial, perhaps even with a touch of steampunk. I think as westerners

You guys better quit this crap now before me or one of the other mods puts an end to this.

It's a case of having more elements isn't really any less. It doesn't appear to be a very imaginative or whimsical concept -- and requires like 80 elements or so, just to make its point. It's really kinda corny.

I like the idea that the same number of elements are used in both. Like that part, but not really crazy for it. I guess the can change the colors in the blocks or place pictures in them.

So where is merchandise available?

I'm going to wait until the brand. The logo has lots of potential if used well with a powerful branding so its a bit too early to say its bad. I admit though its funny how we went back to a ring shaped logo (the original bid one) but now with a checkered pattern instead of cherry blossom.

People really liked the bid logo so it makes sense why they wanted to go that way. If you look back on Japanese bid and games logos, they're either circles, flowers, or both. I have a feeling that the brand will not be directly related to the logo, like in Nagano.

...if I cut you up in little pieces and put you in the freezer I could thaw you out on Aug 4th and eat you bite by bite after rolling you in rice and seaweed. That's kinda a Japanese preparation style! Then I can jump on a plane to Rio real fast and **** you out in the potty in the Japan House....and I'll ask them not to flush you for awhile so you can enjoy it a little before flushing you out to the sailing venue where maybe you can infect some dumb German windsurfer or maybe you would end running off into Copacabana where you can infect some Australian marathon swimmer. Anyway destiny can largely be affected by the goals we set for ourselves so where would you rather visit next Berlin or Perth?

I just :wub: the Olympics, so many opportunities to meet new people and travel to new places!

Thought I'd share this link of a fabulous Israeli-born graphic designer whose work is what Olympic and corporate logos should be about. There are 60 examples of her work using "negative space" imagery.

But I don't know why I'm even sharing it with some yahoos here -- and they know who they are. ;)

Renders for the Japan House in Rio shows that the logo is meant to be color swapped in many ways.

This is common practice when you have solid color logo and graphics, you can see the same practice in phone apps design which currently is dominated by this style, it might be general cause why recent olympic related logos are so simplistic

Nagano's bid logo. Looks like a hokey stick.
