Ladies and Gentlemen, Mesdames et Monsieurs,

ChrisLitherlandBourbonSt.jpg

Welcome back to our fine venue, Mr.Bernham’s Barely Legal Bargain Bed-n-Breakfast on Bourbon, in colourful New Orleans, Louisiana, for the launch of the next stage of our ongoing search for another logo to be bestowed with the honour of gracing my (sometime) signature banner, the GamesBids 2028 Summer Olympic Games Logo Comp. So buy some libations with some beads from Baron’s Book and Bead Barn, kick back and sing along with the Big Easy’s own Harry Connick Jnr and his tribute to logo comp runners up.

This time we begin the race with nine competitors in the starting gate:

A – New Orleans, USA by MissEurasia

B – New Orleans, USA, by mr.bernham

C – Quito, Equador, by Lord David

D – Manila, the Philippines, by CobiWenlock

E – Be’er Sheva, Israel, by Glacib

F – Singapore, Singapore, by aismanggo

G – Kochi, India, by woohooitsme83

H – Milano, Italy, by Anthony

I – Buenos Aires, Argentina, by Paul

The first stage will see members select a short list of four from the entrants of above. The rules for the upcoming round of voting are:

  • Vote in the poll above for your nominations for the 2028 Summer Olympic Games shortlist from the selections above.
  • You may vote for UP TO Four (4) member's logos from the selections.
  • You may vote for less than four, but if you vote for more your votes will not be counted.
  • Entrants MAY NOT vote for their own logo.
  • You MAY post your reasons for your decisions, but try to be respectful please.
  • Voting will last approximately 24 hours. The poll will close after 7am Thursday January 7 2016, Sydney time (8pm January 6 GMT). After this time, the votes will be collated, and the top five logos in terms of votes will proceed to the first elimination poll round.
  • In the event of a tie for fourth (or higher) place giving us more than four logos, all tied logos will also move on to the elimination rounds.
  • Voting is limited to members of GamesBids as of December 1, 2015 with a bona fide posting history. The judge's (my) decision on what constitutes bona fide, and the validity of votes, is final.
  • I'll decide any other rulings on the fly if necessary.
  • I will vote in this round.

So that’s it! Let’s all get drunk and make rash decisions.

Calls most of them sh*t, yet votes for C...

C has movement and the fuzziness of the font catches the eye.

It makes you double take and look again. Regardless of whether or not you like it, it has a "WTF" quality to it. Like the PC18 logo. Oh yeah - it is awful - but it is also F*CKING INCREDIBLY AWESOME!!! It's like the Koreans just gave up on life!

I is far and away the best though.

OK no. C looks like the logo for a conference they'd have at an airport radisson you have to stay at because your flight got canceled and they print it on one of those foam whiteboards placed on a tripod easel, except it's obvious they didn't submit it in a high enough resolution and the printers had to blow it up and you see all these distorted pixels all around the edges and think "thank god i don't have to go to that!" i don't know which is more embarrassing, thinking about quito or this logo. i'm going to go with having to think about quito. i just googled and they don't even have a zara. HOW CAN YOU HAVE AN OLYMPICS IN A CITY THAT DOESN'T EVEN HAVE A ZARA?? where am i going to get all my dress-up $90 sneakers from? NO.

I, and i hate to say it because paul is just going to think i'm picking on him which he loves more than nodding along at a republican debate, just looks like a jumbo shrimp tail you'd go to bite off when having shrimp cocktail and white wine (a breezy weeknight antipast, tip from me to you) but you'd misjudge the end of the shrimp and bite into the hard shell-y part and then have to suck the meat out of. ew i hate when i bite the shell. that's what it is, the games of the 34th shrimp tail. always gets stuck in my teeth. and then they start to pile up and can you put them down the garbage disposal? i can never remember.

i'm afraid the real winners here are B, which is terrific, F, which is amazing but i have a big complaint on, and H because at least you can go shopping in milan.

B is just amazing and terrifically done. and i don't like gradients but it's simple and smart and french. i literally don't remember who made this one, but i am voting for it and my votes are my highest praise. i didn't even vote for a final winner in the winter comp because, lol, weak field. really one of the twins should have roused themselves to submit something but i guess this forum gets the logo contest it deserves. (i have to say, the whole pick your own city idea was a disaster).

F i like, because it's lions and i like lions (rawr). one thing it's missing, and it's true for 99 percent of all gamesbids logos is the concept of movement. many great olympic logos use atheltics and movement to great effect. arguably you could give paul's NYC logo a point in that direction, and while i didn't like it at the time, i have to say atlas looks like he's putting in some effort lifting up that globe. i'm glad to see him put some heft into it while i sit in my jammies eating microwave popcorn and ice cream watching him on my ipad yelling at him for going too slow. everybody's always in a rush to go ok, city...city... famous landmarks? metaphors? the letter it starts with? (those were universally awful) and then stringing together the most generic verbs and nouns in the english language for some word salad like igniting world passion together. i'd have liked to have seen a lion leaping or maybe becoming an athlete or eating an athlete, or part lion part swish and swirl part arm and head leaping or something. that would have been so cool! this is just a lion's head and he's not looking too stoked to be here. very well done but hm, i don't know. would have killed him to smile or open his mouth. like 3 billion people are looking at him. i don't think it should WIN just cause it's pretty. people on this forum can't vote though so that's probably what we'll end up with. i really hope nobody's reading this anymore because i ran out of things to say like 10 minutes ago, but i hope people at least made it to the shrimp tail part. ugh, i think i still feel a piece in the back by my molars.

I feel you could have thrown in a stabbing/supermodel reference if you made some effort in explaining why Milan was good. Oh you can shop in Milan? Pretty certain all these cities have a fucking mall. Except maybe Be'er Sheva - which is just retarded.

Nonetheless - as always - your rants should result in a TLDR, however I did read it. All of it. You raffish baboon - never change.

3 videos about the city, the municiplity creat them (the videos in Hebrew so if you want to know something, tell me each video it is and the second in the video), you can see how the city develpted in 3 years (the first one made in 2013 the last one in 2015).

The grand mall, one of the biggest mall in the Middle East.

So, I don't think Be'er Sheva is just retarded.
