Munich 72 Pins
Posted by Scott
Some Otl Aicher 1972 Munich Olympics pins. There is nothing better than green with that deep aqua-marine (top pin in particular). If I had these I would wear a different one every day on a short sleeved white button up shirt with horn rim glasses. Speaking of the ’72 Olympics, Spitz is still the champ in my book based on style alone.

Dude, he has a moustache, no contest. He probably just walked up to the judges and said give me the medal, and they did.
That first pic of him looks somewhat similar to you. Something you trying to tell us?

@Daniel – Haha, I see the resemblance. I think it’s the eyes and the skin tone. And the track jacket.

Yeah, those are easily my two favorite colors these days. Beautiful stuff.
Fetish objects for designers.

Hey Scott, if you’re in the bay area you should check out a gallery show devoted to the 72 olympics at San Jose State University.
It’s very good.

one of my design professors worked on a lot of the materials for the munich olympics. he was hired by otl aicher – it was his first job out of design school.
