Sir Rols Posted January 2 Report Share Posted January 2 (edited) ‘Bout time this had it’s own thread, considering the news last month: Quote couriermail.com.au Brisbane Games emblems, mascot release dates announced Stephanie Bennett 3–4 minutes With Queensland “technically at year one” in its 2032 Games schedule, the chief organiser is eager for the whole state “to be singing from the same hymn sheet”. Future Brisbane 2022 will present a line up of world-class experts and industry leaders to discuss how the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games can redefine mobility and connectivity across South East Queensland. The Brisbane office for VMLY&R delivered the winning bid for the key contract with a consortium of majority Queensland-based agencies, including Landor & Fitch, Kantar Public and First Nations consultancy, BlackCard. Brisbane 2032 president Andrew Liveris said VMLY&R and the consortiums’ experience impressed the Games Organising Committee, having worked on multiple Olympic and Paralympic Games including Sydney, London, Rio de Janeiro, Nagano, Salt Lake City, Milano Cortina and Atlanta.

The deal is the second major announcement in a week for the 2032 Games, following the news that global executive Cindy Hook had been appointed as chief executive. Mr Liveris said delivering the emblems and the visual strategy for the Games was a key milestone, with the designs set to be unveiled in the middle of next year. A mascot will be further down the track, with Mr Liveris saying the community would also have the ability to be involved through community consultation, market research and market testing “This is technically year one, and we’ve made really great progress,” he said. “I’m anxious to get everyone on the same page, about what this means for South East Queensland, for Queensland and for that matter the country – I want us to be singing from the same hymn sheet.” Brisbane 2032 president Andrew Liveris says delivering the emblems and the visual strategy for the Games is a key milestone.

VMLY&R managing director Adam Kennedy said the company was looking forward to being part of a critical step forward for the Games. “We are honoured and humbled to be able to play this important role in setting the brand strategy and visual identity for the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games,” he said. “We know how important this opportunity is to the people of Brisbane, Queensland, and Australia.” Mr Liveris said the visual strategy was vital as the quest to secure sponsorship ramps up over the coming years, and said he was impressed with how other cities, such as London, had used branding to showcase their Games.
