Olympic Games – The Design



One idea, 2 volumes, 57 Olympic Games, 160 designers, 6,500 images on 1,600 pages and one million hours of research in order to show the iconic symbols and the graphic imagery of the Olympic Games of the modern era. You might love the Lillehammer 1994 sports pictograms or the Athens 2004 Look of the Games, the Tokyo 1964 minimalist emblem, the Mexico 1968 all-over stripes or the Munich 1972 sports posters. When was the first logo, the first pictogram, the first design manual? Each edition of the Olympic Games has a unique identity and many of its design elements have been carried forward. As a matter of fact, some of these identities have been a great challenge for designers, but even more, they have marked milestones in the development of corporate design. Olympic Games – The Design is the first book to focus in details on the visual identities of every Olympic Games since Athens 1896. The books will be available for sale in November 2019 in bookstores worldwide or by the publisher.
