The History of the Olympic Pictograms: How Designers Hurdled the Language Barrier | In My Life | Scoop.it

We take the little icons of swimmers and sprinters as a given aspect of Olympic design, but the pictograms were a mid-20th Century invention—first employed, in fact, the last time London hosted the games, in 1948 (some pictographic gestures were made at the 1936 Berlin games, though their mark on international memory has been permitted to fade because of their association with Third Reich ideology).

Art in the fast lane

The petrolheads among us need no convincing that a car is a work of art. For everyone else, an exhibition of BMWs painted by artists such as David Hockney and Andy Warhol should drive the point home.

Boeing Forecasts $4.5 Trillion Market for 34,000 New Airplanes | In My Life | Scoop.it

July 3, 2012

Boeing (NYSE: BA) projects a $4.5 trillion market for 34,000 new airplanes over the next 20 years as the current world fleet doubles in size, according to the Boeing 2012 Current Market Outlook (CMO) released today. The company's annual forecast reflects the strength of the commercial aviation market.

"The world's aviation market is broader, deeper and more diverse than we've ever seen it," said Randy Tinseth, vice president of Marketing, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "It has proven to be resilient even during some very challenging years and is driving production rate increases across the board."
