The People Have Spoken


A London 2012 Olympic logo created by BBC website reader Richard Voysey has been chosen as readers’ favourite in an online poll.

Over 22,000 votes were cast on a shortlist of six readers’ designs selected by founder of the UK Brand Council, Marcel Knobil.

The BBC has received over 600 alternative logos and more than 10,000 messages about the controversial new Olympic logo, which was unveiled on Monday.

Graphic designer Richard Voysey, who created the image with his brother Chris, said: “I’ve been working from home and the logo was 20 minutes of my time as a first concept.” – BBC

I like this logo. It’s simple, clean, and it has the cute 2012 gimmick. It would be better if Zor could somehow be worked into the design too though.
