The Olympics at Sessions

by Sessions Staff | August 6, 2012
As we approach our third obsessive week of the London 2012 Olympics, it’s easy to forget that branding played a role in the UK’s capital’s successful bid to host the games.

Every four years, national Olympic associations compete to become the host of future events, and the race is currently underway to identify a winner for the 2020. The challenge for Olympics logo designers is to express the unique character of the host city and also communicate the international, inclusive, and inspirational nature of the Olympics. Cities vying for the 2020 job include Tokyo, Istanbul, and Madrid.

At Sessions College, our graphic design students are competing too. The Olympics logo project is a regular feature of our advanced logo design classes taught by Thom McKenna and Boris Margolin. Here are some of the most interesting ideas we’ve seen for 2020. Let us know which citymark you think deserves the games!
