I like the fact that it's bold and different, but I think they've gone to far with that brief. Sure, it says 2012 in there, but I can't see anything related to London or the Olympics.

These two images are designs sent in by BBC News readers that I thought were excellent. Much better than that shoddy mess.

Even better when you read that the designers think the logo "is designed with young people in mind".

More like 0, 3 is when most receive their first knife, then around 5 it's their first mugging

The official one is quite obviously depicting a blowjob. It's so clear it's almost creepy (and the fact whole "designed with young people in mind" makes it extremely disturbing...) O.o

Just close your eyes and keep your mind wide open.
