London 1948 Olympics logo

The Olympics – through the ages

By David

A collection of Olympic logo’s form 1924 to the current day and beyond. It is interesting to see how the use of colour has developed throughout the years. We have included some archive footage to illustrate the times in which the logo’s were made. The opening ceremonies, logo’s and publicity have certainly become more extravagant over time. The London 2012 logo and the Queens parachute jump appear refreshingly divergent in this line-up. Enjoy!
