Continuing some of the feel of the 2016 handover (including the not-too-poppish western-friendly music choice).

Definitely promising.

It's a corny look.  Not very dynamic.  You get tired of it so easily. 

LOL not like the design of your book - - -

Exactly! 

How can you even compare the two?  

Ha!  For all your digs, you stupid weiner, FYI, my book got me a special, private tour of the IOC Museum in Lausanne.   :P  I don't know that you can say as much for yourself -- or for the Tokyo designers.  :P

OBS congress was held recently on the eve of the 2 year to go events and the mascot official introduction.

According to the keynote, which shows temptative dates (that means, they could change), it seems the key elements of the Look of the games will be announced next month, while its official introduction will be in April 2019 for the 500 days to go events.

Pictograms might be unveiled in October 2018, and the Torch design in March 2019. Medal design will probably be done in July 2019

Hmmmm. Quite a dark pallette. Even the pink’s a darker, “dirtier” pink. Certainly going to be a bit different from the brighter hues of the past several games.

I like it.
It's a nice change from the bright colours in Rio and London.
These are some nice, elegant colours.

Very simple yet modern at the same. Fits the japanese style. Also, I instantly knew the pictograms are a small shootout to Tokyo 1964, actually. Makes sense considering these were the first games ever to use pictograms.

In fact they're pretty much just an updated version of 1964 if you take a closer look.

Quote

The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Tokyo 2020) today unveiled the official sport pictograms of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. In line with the Tokyo 2020 brand promise of “Innovation from Harmony”, the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 sport pictograms are designed to subtly communicate the characteristics and athleticism of each sport, as well as artistically highlights the dynamism of athletes. They will play a key role in enhancing the experience of athletes and spectators alike during the Olympic Games.

Olympic Games sport pictograms were first introduced at the Tokyo 1964 Games, which arose from a need to communicate visually to an increasingly international group of athletes and spectators. Since then, pictograms have been created for every edition of the Games.

While paying great respect to the predecessors and inheriting the Tokyo 1964 pictograms by innovating them, the Tokyo 2020 pictograms not only adhere to the objective of communicating information, but also are designed to display athletes’ vibrant movement in the most attractive way.

I was about to say it they look quite generic, but if this is reference to 1964 games it's ok then, i get it now ;]

Took some screenshots from the trailer of the videogames. Seems this is how the Look will be.

That's just a game render, it might change significantly. But we get the idea that look of the Games will be focused on games logo.

The Mario & Sonic games usually always show more or less the look the games they end up wearing (with some minor changes regarding its arrangement). And I kind of believe it since its pretty much using the Hanabi motif they said would be the main element of the look, which they're also using on the website.

Cultural Olympiad logo was shown today in a video which makes a pretty nice use of the Look to be honest.
