olympics 2012

http://typophile.com/node/34223

a discussion on the logo of the olympic games 2012, london.

There are also links for video clips about the logo.

The discussion has also extended to "what a logo is".

Interesting.

I think this is important for us as design students.

yeah,i kind of agree with those comments there...
somehow the idea of a tangram contradicts my rather (ahem!)conventional notion of a symbol...
i always thought a symbol collates different aspects together...and does not disjoin to make the form and meaning so blatant and simple...
hmm...but man the criticism on that blog.Scary!

haha, the icograda site has a write up on the logo as well...its becoming quite a big deal i guess. Dunno why they decided to release the logo 5 whole years early??
