Discover the fascinating story of Coordt von Mannstein's 1968 logo for the 1972 Summer Olympics.
My parents and I used to live in Munich during the 1972 Olympics. I have fond memories of collateral material that my parents collected during the games with this iconic logo on it. I am wracking my brain, trying to think of where it all might be today. Which box? Which folder? The logo combined with the graphic representations of each sport with that blue color is etched into my mind and this article was a good reminder of younger days. Thank you.
This one was a great story to write up. There's plenty of great resources to learn more from, such as Mark Holts book and a reprint og the standards manual. Please drop your recommendations below for future stories, or any additional insight you might into the Munich 1972 design.
