Bloggers commenting on the logo:

The London 2012 logo: the blogosphere is angry
Monday, June 4, 2007

The internet has seen the London 2012 logo - and frankly, they don't like it.

The following is an entirely representative sample of what bloggers and
Twitterers were saying about the pink, jagged bit of 'branding' that cost
?400,000:

OMG! The 'London 2012' logo makes me want to pluck out my eyes. And it's
going to be everywhere I work. I may die. Or kill. Or both.' Reynolds, Twitter

'I would say I'm left speechless but it's more muttering and bashing my head
against my keyboard? Fear not, should you not like pink though as it comes
in a further variety of vomit inducing colours ? yes, it's a pick and choose
wreck of a logo.' www.diaryofawebsite.com

'Despite the fact that if you squint it looks a bit like a couple engaging in an
act of oral sex and despite the fact that one of the Londonist co-editors
described it as a "joke", I really like it. To those of you who agree with me - I
fear we might be part of an oppressed minority for the next five years.' Ben,
londonist.com

'The 2012 London Olympics logo looks like bad stone age art.' dfl, Twitter

'There were lots of good things about the 80s. Style was not one of them.
And yet, this identity screams 1985 at me like a dodgy set of legwarmers.'
minxlj.tumblr.com

'This logo is f***ing s***. Feel free to quote me. It doesn't look like 2012
(which is apparently what it's based on) and it doesn't look professional: it
does, however, look like a f***ing disaster area, so it probably suits the
Olympics rather well.' devilskitchen.me.uk

'Can you imagine how *old* that Olympics 2012 logo is going to look in
2012? It's from 1992. Or 1982.' ruperthowe, Twitter

'How much of my money did they blow on this pink day-glo pig's abortion of
a logo, I wonder?' mreugenides.blogspot.com

'The whole thing is a great big steaming pile of cack, and the logo is no
better either. Frankly, the guy who designed the 'Tiswas' logo should sue!'

I think the logo is crap and is just an example of the way money will be squandered in the run up to the London Olympics. There will be more millionaires made by ripping people off due to the Olympics than there will be gold medals won by Britain.

A wonderful design from 1985, and the trailer seems to be triggering epileptic fits.

Jebus! Its like they just wanna throw away money. Do they have Homer Simpson running this thing? They are building on a site that has been used for landfill and probably has a few second world war bombs left there, there is no underground transport link to it, there are no major roads to it and they come up with some kinda retarded 1980's logo. This is where my council tax is going....
