Olympic Posters Update

The exhibition A Century of Olympic Posters I previewed on Wednesday (scroll down or CLICK) has prompted the Telegraph to post a slide show of posters online (CLICK). However, I found a better website: Colour Lovers has a page devoted to Design and Branding Trends: Olympic Games (title link). When you look at these design trends, you can't help noticing how designs have deteriorated in recent years. The one for London 2012 is the pits. I hate to admit this, but Germany's poster for the 1936 games in Berlin - "the Nazi Olympics" - is the most powerful, with the Brandenburg Gate clearly and dramatically identifying the host city.
