Sigh. Isnt the logo above, unveiled recently for the 2012 Olympics, in a class of its own for badness? Have the gentlemen who selected this design never heard of the virtues of simplicity? How they must all hate the Swoosh. And can yo... [Read More]

By now, you've probably seen the official logo for the 2012 Olympics in London. Personally, I kinda like it, although as a logo it's got just about everything wrong. Take another look at it, and tell me if you don't... [Read More]

Do the shapes used in the logo actually mean anything? Considering it looks like something made using left over construction paper in a primary school art class I think I'd be justified in witholding the fraction of the penny it cost me in my next tax return.

And voting for someone else in the next election. Fair punishment for overwhelming incompetence in the field of absolutely everything.
