UTTERLY HIDEOUS!: 2012 London Olympics Logo

London is well known as a city of culture, innovation and style. The world awaits in anxiety as London reveals the next fashion trend. Hip, chic and magnanimously au courant. But what in the world were they thinking when they came up with this?...



Mon Jun 4 11:56 AM ET/ London (AFP) - The "iconic" logo for the 2012 London Olympics was unveiled here on Monday, but critics immediately condemned it as "hideous" and a waste of money.


Pffft! They can say that over and over again and add the word "horrendous". We are extremely disappointed, London, extremely disappointed.

What do you think is it? I don't know about you but I see the
Australian continent on that logo!

Hahaha! Very clever. I can see Australia too! :-) Hey B, I'll see you soon. Can you post the "attraction" tonight? We need it.

Aside from the rings, there's nothing Olympic about it. Looks like a 12 year old made it.

I like the London 20120 logo, I think when you compare it to the previous Olympic logos it really stands out!

Misterhub's Olympic logo designs are simply better :-)

Hello James, thanks for dropping by again! :-)

Hmmm...I never thought of it that way...I guess you're right. It does stand out from the previous Olympic icons. But still, we are expecting better from London, right?

London Bridge is Fallin Down... Fallin Down... Fallin Down...

It looks ok I guess. I agree with Sofia, it does look a bit ordinary. Until you try and try and try and try and try and try and try some more to interpret it in some other way. Then it will look like, oh well, something else than the ordinary (coz you've convinced yourself it must be something not ordinary alright!). But hey! It is not the map of Australia Sofia, give us more credit than that! He! .he! .he! .I must admit, compared to the previous logos, it's different. (Oh for Christ sake !!! I am being nice here!!!) It is f**in? Oh God! Need I say uninspired? No, it's f**in a disaster. As Pisanu will say. There! Take that! De Acuerdo con Sofia enteramente!

The 2004 Athens' Olympic logo is the most "different" to date. If that is what the London designers are after, it doesn't stand a chance.

Pisanu for BISEAN said...

@khalel...very clever too. lol. It does look like a debris form the fallen London Bridge. But that bridge never fell at all, did it?

Look very closely...! The London Olympic's logo looks like Lisa Simpson (from "The Simpsons") giving someone a blow job.
