wow... you're right, i didn't notice till i turned up the brightness on my macbook but it is very noticeable on a digital platform... I don't know how it would show up in print however... But yes, very amateurish... I did better in HS desktop publishing class back in 2000-2001...

London 2012's 'unofficial embassies' revealed
everal countries have laid their claim on the London buildings they will use as unofficial embassies during the London 2012 Olympics.

The London landmarks to be used for business, diplomacy and parties include Alexandra Palace which will become Holland House and the Museum of London which will transform into German House.

Antony Robbins, from the museum, said: "You can really have fun. It's a place where people can spread out and report back what's happening here in London to the folks back home in Germany."

i reckon that something is better than nothing!

i always try to be optimistic, imo the olympic park needs more colourful things (including flowers, plants, electronic billboards etc)

therefore i suppose this is a great addition

The Dutch place is going to be Heineken House, so there should be plenty of booze flowing up there

As an "artwork" it's pretty tacky, as mooring posts for canal boats - which is what they also are - they're quite nice and fit in with the "Southbank" / festival feel they're going for in the South of the Park. I'd quite like to see them from the bridges or from the Park itself. Nobody is going to see them that close up in reality.
