Easily the best thing about the Olympics so far - which might not be saying much, but I really love
it. The animations that shoot out from it are great. 

They just showed a load of logos for previous Olympicses on Channel 4 News and they were all
wretchedly badly designed, with phony brush strokes, no sense of form and fonts that looked like
they came out of the basic Word menu. This is probably  the most thought-through, striking and
unbland ever. Oh, and 'What the hell is it?' It's the date, 2012, innit.
