    My 5 year old is very happy with his £400,000 for ten minutes work, so stop moaning! :D



    lol..my 10 year old said he'd designed better at school:harhar:

  • Quote from Skye

    I can't beleive £400.00 was spent on this.:eek: What is it supposed to be?


    The random shapes say "2012" but I didn't notice that till it was pointed out. What a badly designed logo. It looks bad, and doesn't even do what it was designed to do. Someone pointed out it also looks like Lisa Simpson giving head. Which once pointed out is all the logo becomes, its also much easier to see that image than it is the numbers "2012".

    The BBC has an "alternate Olympics logo" page, and I found a screenshot of this gem (it's been taken down now, apparently). Spoilered for size.



    I missed that one! Taken down before I saw it. Obviously the bbc webmasters aren't familiar with Goatse.

    Whatever you do, don't look on Google for it, especially not on image search. Here's the Wikipedia link, work safe and mind safe :)

    It was a popular internet joke to send the link to friends and MSN contacts a few years ago. I was horrified at the time, but I find it amusing now, looking back. :D

  • With some of the best design students in the world at their disposal they go and spend almost half a million on utter crap. No wonder the olympic budget is going through the roof

    Thankyou thats the niceest thing anybodies ever said! :D:D:D It's true too!


    here I done it just for you! :D





    But anyway, seriously now...as a famous artist myself.. *cough*


    THAT'S FUCKING SHITE!!!

  • it was on the news last night as a 'sexual simpson' or something like that. makes me giggle everytime i see that. How many countries is the simpsons broadcast in? Not only that but...pink and yellow?

  • It took me a while to work out it read 2012 - Call me stuck in the past but I much prefer my zero's circular and with holes in the middle!


    What grated against my sanity were the people saying things like "the logo has been designed to inspire young people around the world through sport"


    It's a sodding logo! To add insult to injury the telegraph has pictures of previous more tastefull previous official olympic logos it >


    for example

    y'know what - i don't think its a bad logo....

    ....for the 1980's!!

    Are all the athletes going to wear fingerless gloves, colour-change t-shirts and flourescent oddsocks inside huge-tongued trainers on the opening day??

    GAH! That is now all I can see when I look at it. My parents showed me the picture this morning and I couldn't stop laughing :eek: ...you've damaged me :harhar:

  • i find it terrifying/hilarious how many people seem to be enraged by a few squiggly pink lines while all over the place people are being tortured/dying of curable illnesses/being murdered for being the wrong colour etc....
