  • 68 Olympics have been inspirational indeed; identity for the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen gives a firm nod to Mexico.

  • You’re right, this work is beyond brilliant. Sad story: Lance Wyman opened an exhibition of this identity at my old Art School this year AND I NEVER MADE IT. However, it did enable me to unlock the ‘Total Idiot’ badge on foursquare.

    I went to an interesting lecture that Lance Wyman gave for D&AD a few years ago. For anyone interested in him check his work out here:

    i’ve never seen such a complete collection for this olympics, it’s awesome to see what was happening here 40 years ago (overlooking the students’ massacre, that’s another story)

    Great, Interesting piece this!

    I have seen most of the posters and logos of olympics and found the Russia 1980 poster the best. The work is exemplary, creative and unique owing that it was done 30 years ago.

  • Wow that typeface is amazing. Also the logo design is pretty awesome. I wish I was designing in that era of graphic design history.

    Totally agree. Mexico would have to be my favourite.
