Olympic Spirit. Designs Inspired by Rio 2016

Olympic games have always been a source of great inspiration not only for athletes but also for artists. No wonder, considering the fact that this is the largest, the most awaited, and the most important sports event worldwide, at least for over the last century. For many decades, while sportsmen trained and improved their skills, designers also worked hard in plenty of directions, from creating logos and mascots, special uniforms, badges, stickers, posters, and branded sway up to building new unique constructions and setting the landmarks.

Famous tennis player Roger Federer once said: “When I think of the Olympics, I only think of good things. I think of what a great event it is and what it has done for me and my career, and changed my personal life, too“, in that way expressing personal experience echoing the experience of many others. Olympics unite people all over the world, and this massive collective energy transforms into diverse and often stunning artistic forms.

Today, we have decided to start our exploration of the issue of design for the Olympics with a collection of diverse digital art presentations made by designers from different corners of the world. Although the shots present various design approaches, styles, and techniques, what they do have in common is that they all were inspired by the theme of the Olympic Games in Rio, which is in full play at the moment. So, ready, steady, go!
