Ta Da! 2012 Games logo unveiled

London_new_pink Deary me... so the current vogue for all things 80s has finally permeated through to the new logo for the 2012 Olympics and Paralympics.

I guarantee that this will look pony in 5 years time.

What was wrong with this? (At least you can see the river Thames in it)

I think someone created this as part of a "15 min show and tell item" for the monthly design team meetings.

There's no character (I mean literally, not as in 'it lacks character'). Apparently hardly anyone is getting behind 2012; tap into the fascination people have with comics, cartoons, gaming - maybe a really cool character could come and save us apathetic lardarses.

Wow - that's just shit. Still, at least one of the user-made contributions has a Goatse http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/boingboing/iBag/~3/122087146/london_2012_olympic_.html

Don't be so quick to judge: I reckon a certain coloured square was met with similar derision 13 years ago :)
