Catch Up Lady, I'm glad you're back from holiday - this is a gem...
Wolff Olins has come out of this all really badly I feel - their website says nothing about the issue, apart from a Press Release written before all the controversy began. They are not talking to the press, they are not saying a word. Given that they claim to be "the world's most influential brand business" (BTW, was there a competition that I missed which Wolff Olins won giving them the right to claim this??), why aren't they doing a better job of managing their own brand?
Maybe the best thing about all of this public anger and dislike of the 2012 logo is that it is getting people talking and thinking about design and logos, which can't really be a bad thing I guess.
Does anyone like the logo?
