One of the biggest news to come out yesterday was the unveiling of the official Tokyo 2020 logo for the Olympics in four years time. The chosen one was revamped after some controversy over plagiarism awhile back and now looks like this.

Tokyo-2020-Logo

According to the logo designer, Asao Tokolo, the emblem represents “expresses a refined elegance and sophistication that exemplifies Japan” and “incorporates the message of ‘unity in diversity’.”
 With its shade of indigo blue and geometric look, this is what will be plastered everywhere come 2020.

Personally, I’m not sure what to think of this logo. I actually kind of preferred the one they sort of knicked. Maybe its the arrangement of blocks. Maybe I’m a bit dismissive of it. Maybe it’ll grow on me. It seems more neater and thought out that London 2012’s logo. And a little less obscene as well, ha! Actually now that a look at it a little more, reminds me of those pop up origami balls.

What do you think of the logo? Yay or nay?

Here’s a rundown of the past official Summer & Winter Olympic logos of the past couple of decades, including Rio’s logo for the 2016 games and the upcoming few.
