The Emblems Selection Committee have revealed four sets of potential logos for the 2020 Olympics, and Paralympic Games, in Tokyo. You may recall the plagiarism controversy last year regarding the original logo designed by Kenjiro Sano. Amid allegations that Sano copied Belgian designer Olivier Debie, the committee axed Sano’s design. The committee then launched a public design competition to find an appropriate replacement, and it appears the final decision is close.
The designs are being kept anonymous at this point as the public is now invited to share their opinions and vote for their favourite design. Have a look at all the final logo designs below!
Here’s a good one for all you graphic designers out there. Watch everyone’s favourite logo designer, Aaron Draplin, design a logo in 15 minutes. This is the sort of content that I was dying for around the time I was in school. Actually, watching this is exactly how I felt when I first started as a co-op in the concept art department at Electronic Arts. All these seasoned illustrators and designers were making stuff all around me, and I was just sitting there, watching every thing they did, soaking it all up.
