The 1976 Winter Olympic Games were originally awarded to the city of Denver, but they withdrew after some financial concerns. But during the bid, Massimo Vignelli designed a few things, including this wonderful candidate poster. This is one of my personal favorite posters from that era, the way the 76 is cropped off acts as a teaser.

Vignelli | Poster and graphic programme for Milan’s Piccolo Teatro, 1964 and 1965 – illustrating the powerful philosophical connection between Zurich and Milan in the 1960s. Vignelli’s effortless ordering of information – using closely set Helvetica in two sizes and strong horizontal rules – has been echoed in print, blog themes and app design right up to the present day.
Are you enjoying the Olympics? I am... but they certainly do make me feel ultra-lazy. It's amazing what the human body can do though.
