When Design Attacks: London’s Logo Really Making People Sick

2012RippOff_468x379.jpg

You asked for it, you got it! A high-flying design scandal that’s front page news! The question is, what does this really mean for anyone? We’re not sure! But we sure are excited! So excited that we’re feeling really dizzy!

London Olympic Logo Flap Recap
Once again, the epilepsy report from Reuters; over 50,000 people simultaneously puke; Mayor Ken Livingstone says don’t pay Wolff Olins; but Wolff Olins didn’t make the video, they swear; but Armin Vit likes the video; Daily Mail readers can do better; CNN viewers can do better; even–gasp–the SUN can do better!; Adrian Shaughnessy bemoans the loss of his hamster; Lord Coe cries into his shepherd’s pie.

Critic Recap
Peter Saville: “cheesy”, “brave and confrontational”
Stephen Bayley: “puerile mess, an artistic flop and a commercial scandal”
Michael Johnson: “I’m sure a lot of people will hate it”
Jessica Helfand (on the BBC!): “destructive, abrasive”
Adrian Shaughnessy (also on BBC!): “ghastly, dreadful, impoverished, bad, unmemorable, trying to be trendy…”

You know, after looking at it so much today, it almost feels like an old friend. An old friend who used to be really big back in the ’80s until he started doing a lot of blow and and hanging out behind this pub in Brixton wearing the same hot pink jumpsuit from the ’80s instead now it’s covered in razors and broken glass and you accidentally make eye contact and he starts reaching out towards you screaming “Please, please! Just a few pence! I don’t got no one else! I ain’t got nowhere else to go!”

Peter Saville Has the Skinny On Kate Moss’s New Look

Certainly no brand could use a makeover more than the Pete Doherty-addicted Kate Moss, right? But that’s not exactly the story behind this identity for Brand Moss, which comes to us by way of our friends at Creative Review. Moss needed tags for her new fashion label premiering at the UK’s TopShop in May and looked to Peter Saville and typographer Paul Barnes to create a logo that could be used across a range of Kate Moss products (perhaps a line of these?). But even Saville could not escape being drawn into the supermodel’s tabloid-soaked world:

Moss’ involvement in the process came towards the end, when Saville presented her with 20 identity options to view in a meeting that gave him a taste of the model’s paparazzi-hunted lifestyle, when the two were photographed smoking cigarettes out of Storm’s office windows and ended up in the News of the World and on the cover of a French gossip mag, which questioned who Moss’s “mystery new man” was.
