The Winter Olympics in South Korea got underway over the weekend. The logo captured my attention…. what it is?

According the the official website, “The emblem symbolises a world open to everyone. It combines the image of ice and snow, winter sports stars (athletes), and people from all over the world, coming together in PyeongChang where heaven meets earth.”

But it also looks like a temple or a box, with an asterisk. I don’t think the meaning is apparent, or that a symbol of ice and snow is particularly meaningful or special without a spectacular design.

I think the design is a fail as it is clunky, awkward, and fails to transmit a clear message, and I would leave it.

PyeongChang 2018 Emblem

 The logo was registered with the USPTO in 2014 by the U.S. Olympic Committee, which enjoys special trademark protections under statutes from Congress. The Registration covers a wide range of goods and services!
