This is the dynamic version of 2012 London Olympic Games' sports pictograms. Their design was inspired by the connectivity of the London Undergound map.
today the organizers of the 2012 london games unveiled the 38 olympic pictograms designed by someone. there are two versions of pictograms one a silhouette and the other a more colorful rendition 'inspired by the london underground map'.
Im not sure which Olympics this is for though i do like the use of different colours for the oppsing competitors.
necessary for drawing class.
Like most I'm not a fan of the logo, or the mascots but these pictograms are worth a look, they have designed 2 sets, I much prefer these ones.
A few images from a really awesome in depth look at Lance Wyman and the 68 Mexico Olympic games design.
