One year until the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada starts. I’m exited. I love the Olympic Games, summer and winter likewise.
So I wanted to see how the logo designs evolved from the very first Winter Games over the years.
The designs appear to have changed from monochromatic colors and design to multicolor ones.
The logo design seem to take on the trend to simpler and cleaner colors and shapes. Take a look at the logos from Winter Olympic Games 1924 till 2010.

nice article. keep post like this…
Nagano is my favorite logo (and currently reside in Vancouver where all the buzz is Olympics 2010).
Nothing :P. Just what your favorite logo is. I'm sure a psychologist can turn and twist it into a ink blot test. I don't.
I wonder if this is something like an ink blot test? Well, I'll take my chance anyway. My favorite is the logo of Nagano. And now? what does it tell about me 🙂
