The Olympics logo created a stir in the design world and for the public, now it’s time for the Olympics posters.
Leading British artists have designed a range of 12 posters, including (from left to right) Martin Creed, Chris Ofili, Anthea Hamilton, Gary Hume, Michael Craig-Martin, Sarah Morris, Bridget Riley, Rachel Whiteread, Fiona Banner, Howard Hodgkin, Bob and Roberta Smith and last but not least Tracey Emin.
These posters have already caused a lot of controversy this week! My personal favourite is the beautiful poster ‘LOndOn 2012’ created by Rachel Whiteread, who is actually a sculptor. We love how her random print is made up of Olympic rings using colourful bottle and glass rings. It’s great to see how everyday objects can leave a meaningful print and Whitehead describes how it represents ‘memories of a social gathering’ such as the Olympic Games.
Do you have a favourite or are you as disappointed as you were when you saw the 2012 logo…?
