If you've taken a trip down to Offline you probably saw this thread in there. Most of the discussion is about how bad the logo for the 2012 Olympics in London is. I'm holding a small contest here in Design to see who among the TSF population can create a truly unique and cool logo. All TSF members and staff are invited to participate.

Prizes are as follows:

1st - Praise!
2nd - Slightly less praise
3rd - I'll tell you the time of day. Once.

The Rules

The logo can be created digitally on a PC, drawn and scanned, photographed, whatever you like. All submissions MUST be original in design and incorporate the rings, the word "London," and the number 2012. Submit by posting in this thread as an attachment or host your image using a service such as PhotoBucket or Image Shack. All sizes are permitted. Participants are allowed to enter as many times as they like. All submissions MUST be in by midnight July 7th, 2007 GMT-6.

I got my friend's 4 year-old to have a go, but you can send the prize money to me.

FH is auto-disqualified for having insane talent with 3D software and making me insanely jealous with each image produced.

Naw, I can't do that.

Freddy, make my eyes dance!

oh i'm borderline insane alright - just insane though. i was meant to be head deep in 3d tutorials by now, but i found a 2 week old kitten that i've been hand feeding for the last 2 weeks. that said i was going to do a little bit more on 3d for tsf over the weekend.

anyway, i don't think i can top koala's 4 year old friend.

I'm far from advanced with Photoshop, so here is what I concocted. If it could be spruced up I'd easily see this as a bumper sticker/t-shirt.

And note, I did not vector Big Ben. I wanted to though, that or a torch.

Was this done in Photoshop or Illustrator? How did you get the circles to interlink like that? Any chance of a color version?

Anything can be used, Photoshop, Paint, hand-drawn and scanned, etc. You could even paint 5 leaves the Olympic colors then put them onto your scanner and add some text to the image to create a logo. Whatever you want.

I like how to composed the London Eye with the ring, well done! The only problem is that the letters in "London" are hard to see against that dark background.
