The Olympics; Reworked

The Olympics; Reworked

14th August 2012

So the 2012 Olympic Games are now over, and if I’m being honest, a few months back I never thought I would feel even the slightest bit lost without the daily hype surrounding the athletes and their sporting achievements, and which country is in the lead with gold medals. But incredibly, I am now. Thankfully […]

I’ve been watching the build up to the Olympics for a while and indeed have seen this banner in my hometown of Chiswick for weeks, each night on the 94 bus stop at Turnham Green Terrace. Today I walked past it before going home to see the closing ceremony and wanted to capture its sentiment. […]

Gold in W4

We spotted a gold post box at the town hall in Chiswick over the weekend, sparkling in the sunshine. Looked great and was there in honour of one of the victorious crew from the rowing mens four, Pete Reed, who lives and trains in the area. His team mates Alex Gregory, Tom James and Andrew Triggs […]

A Record-breaking Lift

A Record-breaking Lift

8th August 2012

On Saturday I went off to Excel to watch the men’s weightlifting 94kg division. I’m a fan of the World’s Strongest Man competitions, so I was really looking forward to seeing how much these guys could lift. I was not left disappointed! It was unbelievable watching them lift such enormous weight. It’s incredible to see how far athletes can […]

Celebrity Spots

8th August 2012

Even though London has been a bit of a ghost town over the last week or so, there’s been a fair amount of celeb spotting to be had on the tube. Athletes past and present, commentators and presenters galore. They all seem to have shunned the Olympics lanes in favour of the good old underground. […]

Olympic Coin

I almost forgot about the ridiculousness of paying £1.20 for a miniature bottle of no-name water in Stratford station this weekend after receiving a sparkling new Olympic 50 pence piece in my change. According to The Royal Mint, these coins are all but being taken out of circulation by the general public as they hoard […]

The Olympic flame

The Olympic flame

7th August 2012

The original site of the Olympic games in Greece was also home to a spectacular Doric temple devoted to the God Zeus. The games were created to celebrate Zeus, and the Olympic flame that burns throughout the games represents the fire that Prometheus stole from him, an unintended gift to man. Today the Olympics is an […]

‘Special’, ‘Process’

6th August 2012

The use of the humble Process Magenta and Process Yellow as some of the London 2012 colours has allowed the games to become immediately distinctive. These colours are two of the four inks that feature in standard printing, from newspapers to literature and the smart thing is, that by using these, allows some collateral to be […]

A lovely alternative Olympic logo idea. Sarah Hyndman of With Relish, a London based design agency, started a project called  Olympic Logo a Day. The idea was to take a photo of random objects arranged to resemble the Olympic Rings each day for a whole year. Not only Sarah was involved, the project was open to contributions from […]
