Olympic Pictograms

I’m honestly not a huge fan of the Olympics. I think that they are an important part of global culture, but I just personally do not enjoy watching them, particularly the winter olympics. I just don’t really find the sports that appealing. I mean, who plays curling anyway?

I did fine this video by the New York Times to be really interesting though. It documents the history of the famous Olympic pictograms rating the different images over the years. I had never really paid that much attention to the pictograms before but the history and design of them really is fascinating.
