11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/26/08 - 2:09:10 PM EST (GMT-5)
i can see the 2012 in it.

Has anyone ever liked the logo or mascots for any Olympics?

Past logos:

Ok that turned out a lot bigger than I expected. I hope people don't mind.
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/26/08 - 2:36:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's okay I guess. People will get used to it.
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/26/08 - 3:13:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's okay but I wouldn't say it's awesome
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/26/08 - 5:55:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. When I first saw it, I didn't even realise exactly what it was. I think it's rubbish, and this is coming from a Briton.

The logos for 1964, 1996, and 2008 look the nicest. The 2012 one looks like sh*t.
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/26/08 - 7:22:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
it does look like sh*t.
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 8/26/08 - 7:25:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
It sort of reminds me of two people 69ing.........

Someone mentioned it on TV now all I see is Lisa Simpson giving a BJ. (Lisa's the figure on the right)

Think of all the money they spent designing it as well *Shudders* It's almost as bad as this the UK Conservative party (Torries) logo that cost 80K

My favorite is the Barcelona one. But really, I'd say London is my least favorite.
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/27/08 - 11:56:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
Atlanta is my favorite
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/27/08 - 2:11:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all. It looks horrible.
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/27/08 - 2:34:55 PM EST (GMT-5)



this was picked in a public vote but not getting used

That looks so much better.

The actual logo is frickin' ugly.
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/27/08 - 4:16:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
The 2012don one is indubitably better, arrogant tossers. I had to be informed that the chosen logo allegedly depicts 2012 because I thought it depicted lollipops. The 2012ondon may have been even more to my taste were it written in 1930s-style letters.

That is great.

The f*ckwit that approved the Lisa Simpson BJ logo should have his head placed on a pole at Tower Bridge.

Yeah, I don't mind the first one but that second London one is a lot better.
11 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Wednesday 8/27/08 - 4:56:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
Personally, I liked the idea of not going for some plain logo that could be for anything (like all the ones from 1984 - 2000), the concept of going for something mad and funky.

The outcome is pretty disastrous mind.

Although, you've got to admit it's a great brand; the day after its release it was on all the front pages - advertising that money can't buy!

Which is practically useless without competitors.

Oh GOD no. It's horrible.
