      Yeah, ouch. You'd expect something better from the center of the design world.

      I still think the Chicago 2016 logo is one of the best... both it's old and new incarnation.

      A quick google image search for Chicago 2016 should show you both instantly.

      I checked out the Chicago logo. I guess people's tastes differ. To me it looks like a button on my telephone.

      Just be glad you don't live in the UK, its appearing everywhere.

      I do like the money down the drain image. I live in the Midlands and I'm seeing public money meant for the whole country being spent on London.

      My own take on the logo is here (NSFW).

      $800,000. I'll do a better one for 1/2 price - and the animated version of it will not cause some people to suffer epileptic seizures, as London's reportedly did. I wonder if the designer paid for the trauma.

      I love how in the UK, every new logo, sooner or later is referred to as a stylised swastika. The same was true of the innovative BBC Nine O'Clock News titles in the late 1980's. The British have an uncanny knack of never being able to constructively critique design – especially when it breaks the mold, and when it is new or different – and thus prove Godwin's Law many times over.

      Here was my take on it (and the media frenzy that surrounded the launch):

      Whilst I'm not a massive fan of the icon, I'm absolutely in love with it's bravery, and how it has finally breathed new life into the otherwise tired and predictable brand that is an Olympic Games.
