LA 2024 Olympics bid logo
So they've released the logo to be used in the Los Angeles bid for the 2024 olympics...

Quote:The logo features an angel in the colors of the sunset with wings outstretched and a sun shining from its heart. The slogan is: "Follow the Sun."

An angel with detached wings following the sun as it sets. I guess with the wings having fallen off you'd expect it to fall into the Pacific. Somebody actually got paid money to come up with something that bad.

I don't know, I actually think it's pretty decent. Then again, it's fairly well established in my own house that I don't know stuff about things. My own four-year-old is acutely aware of this fact, and has asked me such.

"Daddy, why don't you know stuff about things?"

I don't think it's that bad either. Just a tad tacky.

It has a nice mermaid pop off toward the bottom.

Normally these logos seem to be abstract genitals, so I guess this Mer-Angel is less for the course.

Didn't AL La have the Olympics recently anyway?

I know for a fact it is rigged anyway.

Looks like a giant tongue licking the back of a pixie.

Why can't it be in the same vein as Icarus? Did the designer actually say it's an angel?

Probably because Icarus fell to his death Evil_monster

Yeah in 1984, but apparently it's considered to have gone really well so they'd have a success record of transposition and event stadiums up.

I don't see how it's rigged, since like financial endowments are basically the significant part of it. I don't see that as hidden enough to be ridged as that seems already upfront in all these cases.
