Ode to Otl

odetootl

There’s only a few left of this great poster by pol.

In case you are wondering what the title means, Otl stands for Otl Aicher, the German graphic designer who created the pictograms as part of the graphic design programme for the 1972 Olympics in Munich. For more on Otl Aicher, check out this site, or this book.

I created a series of 4 posters, called Stars of Track and Field, to celebrate British sporting achievement in 2012.

Each print depicts an athlete at a moment of transcendence, a moment of pure energy.

Cancellara

I created this image using an iPad app I built called Triade. Spartacus had a disappointing season in 2012 after falling in the Ronde van Vlanderen and breaking his collarbone, and a crash in the Olympics road race meant he could not challenge Wiggins in the time trial.

Triade is available for iPad and also Android, find out more here.

From the website of Building Design, is this animation of the Velodrome for the London Olympics 2012. Designed by Hopkins Architects, the velodrome looks set to be one of the highlights of the Olympic park, and will finally give London a world-class indoor cycle track. The video is a superbly well-crafted flythrough of the winning design. I love the way the video transforms from the wireframe tracery of the riders to a full color animation. All that’s missing is the obligatory Kraftwerk soundtrack.
