Artists not Designers for London 2012

1972 Munich Games Poster Max Bill

1972 Munich Games Poster Max Bill

Twenty nine artists are commissioned to produce posters for the Olympic Games, Max Bill among them, but this is not the London 2012 Games, this happened back in 1972 for the Munich Games.

It was a success and made over 2 million Deutschmarks. Let us hope the twelve artists commissioned for the London posters can do as well.

It would have interested me to see what leading designers in the UK could have produced if they had been given the chance but maybe something put the organisers off that particular idea.

Signs of the times…

Back in the city after a wonderful break in The Lake District and saw this…

Bed Bugs Sign

…and then on my way home in a supermarket car park… this…

Fire juggling youth

Forgive the poor quality but it was dark and this was my camera phone. I can tell I’m home again, not too many people juggling with fire in Ambleside.
