Someone get a graphic designer, stat!
The title of this post was my first reaction to the logo for the 2012 London Olympics. I'm so glad it comes in different colors, as if that will make it any better. Yea, yea, I realize it is some sort of neo-futuristic font that says "2012", but if this is a vision of the future, I think a postmodern breakdown in communication is going to be inevitable.
I'm quite fond of the British, but what the hell are the people in charge thinking (especially considering they paid 400,000 pounds for the crappy thing)???
EDIT: BBC News website readers have sent in some alternatives to the new logo, some are not bad.
5/6: And even more BBC reader submissions
