Queen of the Stone Age

London unveiled the 2012 Olympics logo and people apparently are up in arms about it.

What strikes me is we're passing judgment on something that has to be relevant and stylistically in place with the designs of those times. The times 5 years from now. Not to mention the 5 years leading up to that where it will be placed on everything from construction signs in and about London to baby's booties. No small feat. No pun intended.

So naturally, it's gonna be hard to get it right now. Who knows, maybe by then we'll all be in those snazzy one piece reflective suits like Mork used to where. I want one of those. Today.

At any rate, the logo:

Personally, I like it. Interesting type. It's a little Barney Rubble but at the current rate we're going that should be right in with the times then.

I hate it. I'm not necessarily an opponent of an 80s/Memphis style resurgence, but this is bad. It's illegible, and the small type is so heinous. Take it away. Far far away.
