Excellent logo. Love the logo work produced mid-late 70's. Type at the top of its game as well!!

You can read more about the Montreal design over here: http://wemadethis.typepad.com/we_made_this/montreal-olympics-1976.html


Thanks, Alistair. Interestingly enough, I see that you could have come up with that same link if you'd dug around in my archive: http://www.davidthedesigner.com/davidthedesigner/2007/07/some-more-about.html


I'm not sure when they set out the new guidelines but current logo submissions aren't allowed to show the Olympic Rings or torch until they're chosen as the final logo.

It's a bit of a shame because the Olympic Rings are a pretty spot on piece of logo design and, as you've just proven with the Montreal design, a great foundation to start from. The 2012 logo is a great example of Designers working to a brief that has very little to do with the final brand, making the end result look a little out of place...
