The Chicago 2016 Olympics. Stir the Soul.
So, the Chicago 2016 Committee has changed their logo.|
And so the Chicago 2016 LiveJournal Community has changed the default icon to reflect the new star-based symbol.
What are your thoughts on the new logo?
Me? I like it. It probably doesn't emote the feelings of hope that the Committee says it does, but it's a very simple design that combines many of the things about Chicago that makes it unique. The Chicago Flag's star, Chicago Architecture, the city's parks, and Lake Michigan, and the passion of its people for sport and competition. It bears a very small resemblance to the Salt Lake City 2002 logo (in that it had a multi-coloured snowflake-like design), but not enough to recall those games.
So if we get chosen, we'll probably go back to the original torch design, but until then, they made a nice substitute. What say ye?
