the 2012 olympic games in london will open tonight and so today i thought i'd look at olympic graphics. in the years that have passed since the 2012 logo was first unveiled i still have never really learned to like it in its fashly colours,above, but below when simplified on stamps it does look pretty striking. im looking forward to watching the opening ceremony tonight, especially since i've heard there will be some david bowie songs included. i hope you enjoy the show if you're watching, back on tuesday for more P+P. i've also posted up the official olympic stamps for the united kingdom which feature colourful flat graphics designed by paul smith.
