Had this laying around for a while, classic Olympic poster. This is a perfect example of how much the core ethics of design have changed. Take this one in, then have a look at these olympic logos…. what happened to design?
A lot of wonderful things going on in here. The logotype is incredible, the layout perfect, and the imagery spot on. Love the weight of the font and the subtly distinctive modifications. I am really averse to the modern trend of forcing a logo mark. This image recalls the time when they knew how to create a proper logotype.
Anyone have a copy? I would think these guys must.
