Torino 2006 winter olympics D-5

from left to right, top to bottom
logo, look of the games, mascott, pictogramms, poster and medals

logo designed by Benincasa-Husmann

The “Mole Antonelliana” with its unmistakable silhouette takes on the resemblance of a mountain reaching far up high, where the white of the snow meets the blue of the sky. The Torino 2006 Olympic Games Logo is the perfect synthesis of geographical, emotional and cultural connotation. The geometric forms of the ice crystals which form the heart of the Mole – the symbolic essence of the city of Torino – are intertwined to form a closely woven net: the web, emblem of technology, but in particular of the eternal spirit of communion between nations, which the Olympic Games have represented right from their creation.

the poster was designed by
Agenzia Armando Testa


u might be fed up with these kind of graphics but they sure r fun
plus the site is interactive

hugo the boss

i went to the expo ' cet immense reve de l'ocean'. It's the drawings of victor hugo.

ok first i didnt know he used to draw and
second the bastard draws very good
well there were two kinds of drawings
1. very detailed ones, mostly black and white pretty boring
2. very chaotic drawings like u can see the brush strokes most of them done with sepia ink
but these ones r awesome!!
theyre very dynamic
its like he had spilled coffee on his drawings but they look soo good
u can still see what it's about even though its very general

maybe u'll undertsand more what i am saying....


when i first saw this ad on tv i thought the balls were added on the computer
but i visited their site and there's the making of and they actually released 250 000 balls in san francisco
it's great u should watch the ad and the making of!

lost in translation

great animations

reza abedini is a talented graphic designer and the best typographer (in arabic script) in my opinion
i love his work but the thing is u cant compare him to a lot of pple since typography (ie modern) is not a popular art in arab countries
or maybe i should look some more...
Reza Abedini site


have u noticed how important music is in ads today
so important that sometimes u dont remember the brand or the name of the product at the end, instead, ure just humming the song
i love when the music makes the ad so catchy but the viewer should 'catch' the brand not the music

check the sncf tgv 2006 ad
