Description
The Olympic Pictograms have been an integral part of the Olympics for decades, and this poster was designed to show off their artistry and history.

The design emphasizes the imagery and illustrative qualities of the pictograms themselves, since they are the primary subject matter of the poster. The historical explanations at the bottom, then, act simply as supplemental information.

The color palette and circular cropping of the pictograms were inspired by the colors of the Olympic rings (minus black).
