I’m a bit late on this, but I found the graphics and use of color in this summers’ Olympics the most stunning and effective ever. They were also downright beautiful. How brave to use graceful swirls of movement and gradient washes of color for an athletic event. Most often flat bold colors are used. I realize the motifs were inspired by jade carvings. And the lucky cloud symbol found its way onto the torch and other collateral. I was thrilled to watch not only the events this year, but all the graphic design. I had trouble keeping my eyes on the swimmers because the pool banners were just so fantastic! 

What did you bead and color lovers think when you saw them?
