The Olympic pictograms

The Olympic Games are a celebration that comprises more than sports.

My personal highlight of this year’s Olympic Games opening ceremony was a videoclip made to celebrate the creation and the evolution of the pictograms used to represent every discipline, as these were born in the Tokyo 1964 Olympics.

I am not a professional graphics artist, but I really enjoyed the production, its music and the little details in the desktops of the designers as they were shown ideating and illustrating the pictograms, with their tools, references and more mundane items. So here’s a capture of all of them, enjoy!
