Behind The Minimal Look Of The 2014 Olympics Logo

Behind The Minimal Look Of The 2014 Olympics Logo | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Although the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics logo hasn't garnered the same sort of criticism as the 2012 London Olympic Logo, it is an odd design in the grand spectrum of previous Olympics. Featuring futuristic lettering with letters and numbers that partially mirror each other, it is the first to bundle a web address right in the logo, as well as the first to entirely eschew hand-drawn elements. In a word, it's gone flat. But why?

Does the Apple logo really adhere to the golden ratio? | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

I'd seen this graphic debunked, but it wasn't particularly rigorous, so I decided it was finally time to sit down and answer this for myself definitively.
In researching this, the first thing to go looking for seemed to be whether or not the designer of the logo, Rob Janoff, has spoken about his process. Indeed, Janoffhas addressed in an interview the evolution of the shape:

aaron draplin (DDC) interview | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

DB: please could you tell us briefly about the evolution of your work?
AD: I started out in print, laying out newspaper ads. loads of information, packed into small spaces. when I started making magazines in 2000, there was a mountain of information, photos and elements. I loved the pace and the challenge. I was comfortable with taking a lot of information and distilling it down into something readable, versatile and hopefully, fun to process. as the years have progressed, my focus is more and more on logos and individual elements. so I like to think my work has evolved from complex layouts down to simplified little forms. but man, I still know my way around a grid! try me, you punks!
