Meanwhile, over at Wolff-Olins

The firm responsible for the London 2012 Olympics logo is hard at work trying to fix the public backlash. They've got a brand new website, and apparently they have people searching the blogs like mad hounds, looking for negative comments and offering the new spin. An online petition against the logo that had well over 50,000 signatures has disappeared. A new petition in support of the logo has appeared. (under 300 signatures in 2 days.)

A commenter on this blog suggested that controversy equals success. That sort of "any press is good press" line is pure crap.

  • I love that image so much.

    Have you seen the 'new' one? It's all these colors. I hadn't seen it on Monday. I don't know how they managed, but they made it worse than the solid color versions (IMHO).

  • Guess it’s ‘evolving’ as we speak. Those whacky Brits.

  • And as for useless Pee Wee trivia, and since you didn’t ask, Mr. Herman is apparently a former Marine.

  • Hey jetpacks...
    Whoever did the captions fucked up slightly... Seb Coe isn't a Sir... He's a LORD... So next time you go to England you could end up in the Tower of London!

  • Thanks for that, GP. I am the captionist and take full responsibility and will turn myself in.

  • Generic Zocor Simvastatin drug is an hmg-coa reductase inhibitor or "statin" used to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglyceride levels in your blood or to raise good cholesterol (HDL) levels in adults.

    Generic Lipitor ATORVASTATIN drug belongs to the group of medicines called 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitors.It works by blocking an enzyme that is needed by the body to make cholesterol, thereby reducing the amount of cholesterol in the blood.


    Generic Crestor Rosuvastatin drug is used to reduce the amounts of LDL (bad) cholesterol, total cholesterol, triglycerides (another type of fat), and apolipoprotein B (a protein needed to make cholesterol) in the blood. Rosuvastatin also increases the level of HDL (good) cholesterol in the blood. These actions are important in reducing the risk of atherosclerosis (fatty deposits in the arteries), which can lead to heart attack, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease.


    Generic Norvasc Amlodipine drug is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and to treat angina (chest pain).


    Generic Plavix Clopidogrel drug is used in the prevention and treatment of heart attack, stroke, blood clots, and acute coronary syndrome.
