London 2012 Olympics logo, redux

Olympicslogodm_468x709 Here's an example of a GOOD Olympics logo. This is the official poster from the London 1948 Olympic games.

The backlash against the London Olympic Committee's 2012 logo is growing. Hundreds of people have uploaded their own designs to the BBC, many which are much cooler and relevant than the LOC logo. Here's a sample of fan-created logos:

I think my favorite is the last one!  If you look closely, the shapes spell out how the artist feels about the LOC's £400,000 new London 2012 logo: "Ripp Off"!
