'Spiele: Olt Aicher's Olympic Graphic design
' is currently showing at the Natalie and James Thompson Art Gallery in the San Jose State University. The exhibition includes posters, signage systems, brochures and uniforms, in fact all the design elements of the event designed by Otl Aicher. I'm not sure this body of work has been seen together since the actual 1972 Olympics.
The Munich Olympic design, 'perfectly embodies his philosophy and is the definitive example for today's graphic identity and branding programs'.
If you are lucky enough to live in the area, get over here and see it, it might be your only chance to see them together - I am so jealous!
