Olympic posters

 

A series of London 2012 Olympic posters by British artists were released last week - the designs are fun and fresh with prints already available for purchase online. My favorites are the retro silhouetted legs of Anthea Hamilton's "Divers" and the repetitive ring motif of Rachel Whiteread's "lOndOn 2012."


In honor of the release, The Telegraph ran a great sideshow story featuring Olympic posters throughout history - a few standouts below. Isn't Mexico's 1968 design the coolest?
