London Logo

UK - London 2012 Olympic Logo

Sent by: LunaRose
From: Liverpool, England, UK
For: North America Meets the World Round Robin - Group 608
Notes:  London became the first city to host the Olympics three times - 1908, 1948 and 2012.  This is obviously the 2012 logo.  It's rather funky, and was widely disliked, according to a 2007 BBC poll.  The font is called Headline 2012, and according to journalist Simon Garfield in his book Just My Type, it is the worst font in the world. Unfortunately, this is the only postcard I have from the London Olympics.
