Saw this ’72 Munich Olympics Merchandise Catalog over at the Creative Review blog and thought it was pretty neat. When we think of the Munich Olympics identity, we always think about the great posters, brochures and programs, but in fact there was a ton of other items that were just as great. Love those striped tote bags. All of these other goodies, along with this catalog, were created by the German firm, Fahnen-Fleck.
40 years ago, Otl Aicher and his team designed the revolutionary identity system for the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. UCA Canterbury in the UK is celebrating this iconic work with an exhibition featuring posters, pictograms, information design, and range of print and promotion materials from the games. The exhibit will be held from June 29th – July 31st at the Herbert Read Gallery.
