Spain’s Olympic Logo Getting the Thumbs Down

Spain’s Olympic committee has revealed the logo for its bid for the 2020 Summer Olympics (left). It was designed by a 22-year-old graphic arts student, and is meant to incorporate an “M” for Madrid and arches from one of that city’s landmarks, the Puerta de Alcala. General consensus: It is terrible.

The Telegraph reports that both social and traditional media outlets are lambasting the logo for being a confusing mess that looks like it might be better suited for the “20020″ Olympics.

Fast Company is one of the outlets reporting on the awfulness of the logo. However, its story opens up with an image of a bullfighter. So as a special bonus, commenters are also going after the site and its author for using a stereotypical image that has nothing to do with the Olympics.

“Fantastic connection between Bullfights and graphic design… WTF!,” writes one commenter.
