Ah OK, thank you for this explanation. The original Axelferis's statement was a bit weird.
I don't remember what Bercy's restrooms look like.

Flippant and gimmicky (as I was using them) means that it is trying to be clever where cleverness is not called for. You have to search the logo for its meanings (Eiffel Tower, 2024). The idea you leave with is "isn't that clever!" not "my, that really reflects the Olympic spirit".

Not that any of this is more than my opinion. You may prefer the cleverness of the Paris logo. I am just saying that it is not appropriate for a brand that is associated with the idea of dedication to the highest levels of performance and to the unification of the world in peace through sport.
Thanks for explaining! Clever might be the better word for the Paris logo. With simple and elegant I meant to say that they only use two elements to create three meanings, the two, the four and the Eiffel Tower (not totally succeeding haha). I do really like the Los Angeles bid logo, I hope they can keep it as Olympics logo in some way.

It does have a simplicity and elegance. Deco often gives that impression since it is basically a classical approach (physical and emotional restraint and an abstraction from the natural to the ideal) with its own characteristics. Colors are muted and harmonious.

Again, there is an interesting contrast with the Paris logo, which goes with a more complex design, meaning through direct representational means rather than stylistically, and bolder colors.

As I said before, an Eiffel Tower in the style of Picasso, Klee, Delaunay (who did many of them), Lichtenstein or many other modern approaches would have been nice and would more closely reflect the reality of what is going on in Paris today.

The same venues will be used in the same way to host both women's and men's football?

I saw a bunch of reviews from professionals in the graphics field when that logo was first unveiled. Most of them were complimentary about and in favor of it.

The varying personal tastes of people in that group, of people elsewhere, and of my own, of course.

2012 spent over $600,000 on what was the most execrable logo I've ever seen. But a logo produced by a presumably professional design firm overseen by supposed experts.

I'll never forget about reading that when one of the extremely complicated and very costly American space shuttles blew up during take-off (or re-entry?---forgot the details), the disaster was traced to a basic mathematical error made by - or never detected by - the experts at NASA. Several years before that, another disaster occurred when caution was tossed out the window and a space shuttle was allowed to be launched even though that day had overly cold temperatures.

The world press has a couple of "good news" stories re the Paris Olympics, outlining how the French are beefing up their security and their ability to bypass the old rules in getting terrorists arrested.

Of course, this also costs money and invades civil liberties but that’s a trade off every country has to make.

Pah, that ain't got nothing on London's gorgeous fencing venue!


(ExCel Exhibition Centre, London (photo: https://www.efp.org))



I'll be honest, I didn't understand what I was watching when I went to the fencing at 2012. Of all the new sports I saw for the first time it was the hardest to follow for a newbie. Huge pack of French fans dressed up in striped shirts and berets sat next to me though, who were brilliant (and I assume, understood what they were watching).

And still a little miffed that, in their infinite wisdom, the IOC couldn't push forward the introduction of Rugby Sevens so it was a sport at London 2012. A little bit of flexibility to get 7s started in a Rugby nation would've made a lot of sense. Ah well.
