The new London 2012 Olympic pictograms

The pictograms for the 2012 Olympic games were launched yesterday, designed by Yasmine. Glancing back over the pictograms of the past decades (a new set is designed for every tournament), I actually still like those of the 1972 Munich games best (designed by Otl Aicher). Simple, recognizable, and full of movement and energy.
Somewhat related, designs for Olympic posters that were not adopted in an earlier post. Again simple and full of motion.
