I was so hoping for a goldmedal or at least a silvermedal for my favourite Emma Johansson in the cycling at the Olympics today. Sweden hasn’t really started the Olympics that well. I am a bit worried in terms of medals this Olympics. Crossing my fingers….

LOCOG has unveiled the ticket designs for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Designed by Futurebrand, the tickets incorporate Someone’s pictogram designs along with images of the venues. (via Creative Review)

I am not in favour of the 2012 Olympic logo by Wolff Olins and this is not holding up either in my opinion. Feels like a look back in time to the early 90s. Ugly pictograms, poor fontchoices with 90s angles as a backdrop. Feels unbalanced and unesthetic.
