Olympic big logos: Rio De Janeiro

Last, but certainly not least: Rio!

When I first viewed this logo, I was a bit perplexed. What is the strange, amorphous object floating over 2016? Is it a leaf? An abstract butterfly? Maybe it some sort of duck-billed animal?

Then it dawned on me; its the iconic mountains and coast line that makes Rio such a picturesque place. Once I processed this data the logo become quite a delightful experience.

I like the use of yellow and blue (taken from the country’s flag). I also like the “i” and “1” because they mirror the exclamation points used in Spanish (Yes, I know that the official language of Brazil is Portuguese. Do they use the two exclamation points in Portuguese too?).

Anyway, now that you’ve seen the four Olympic bid logos, who deserves to be awarded the 2016 Olympics?
