The 2006 Olympiad in Torino
Without a doubt one of the most innovative visual communications program in the history of the games. All of the visual elements are brought together under the concept of the Piazza (public square) to create the “look of the games”. This is a massive project and its execution at various levels is very impressive and is sure to catch the attention of anyone interested in event communication systems as complex as that of the olympics. From the fantastic multi-dimentional pictograms and wonderful event signage to the stunning medals and an amazing torch design the credit is definitely due to the folks at TOROC graphic team, Benincasa-Husmann, Pininfarina and Ottaviani.
