Day 100

Graphic Design and the Olympics.

June 24 2024. Monday. SJ.

I recently purchased a domain with the idea of having a gallery of beautiful book covers. Most will have been designed by others, and a few by myself. I've really been enjoying re-designing the covers to the books I'm reading, if I don't like the cover.

But this project is entirely bookish, although I'm still interested honing my design skills.

The summer olympics is coming up, and I was reminded of the incredible designs by Lance Wyman.

wyman's design of the poster for the 1968 summer olympics.

A study of the designs of various things for the olympics from its first event in 1896 to now looks really promising.

And it seems like a unique project too. This would not only be a design/art study, but one of history and athletics as well.
