Interpretation of the London Olympic mascot

the London Olympic Organizing Committee announced to the public, the mascot of the 2012 London Olympics . As soon as he appeared , Winrock and Mandeville weird mascot of " Cyclops , " a style would attract controversy .

Inspired by the shape of the two mascots from the construction of Olympic venues in London , on a steel column dripping down the root of the molten steel , the head of the yellow light from the iconic London black taxi . Winrock wearing Olympic rings friendship bracelet color , Mandeville wore wrist stopwatch . Their big eyes are the camera , used to " capture " the person they met , the places .

Compared with the previous Olympic mascots , the number of warm Locke and Mandeville seemed to be somewhat eccentric , They look like ill-prepared on the thinking of people who really have no small impact. Although the London Olympic Organizing Committee has repeatedly stressed that the mascot is full of the imagination, unfortunately, people seem to really like them really small . In particular, people do not buy it is in London , due to unsatisfactory design of the mascot , and many people on the British designer of London published a very sharp criticism.

According to the London Olympic Organizing Committee 's view , the two mascots are designed for children .

Big Ben London Olympics is not obvious , like the British Round Table Knights of traditional cultural symbols , but to rock music , football and other popular elements presented to the public . This mascot is the " avant-garde , abandoned the traditional " use of the " new language. "

Winrock and Mandeville may not like the mascot of the 1972 Munich Olympics , " Waldi dogs " and the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games mascot " Misha Bear " as popular , but that does not like the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games mascots "Izzy " as was widely considered to be flop. There designers recommendations from people not try to direct him to see on the mascot of British characteristics , its subtlety lies in their origin - Molten Steel on behalf of the United Kingdom made the largest contribution to the world : industrial civilization .

London Olympic mascot design was critical to meet the official said that only children

according to foreign sources , when the London 2012 Olympic Games emblem was published three years ago , the UK on the design of their strange puzzle -like disdain for this week three , the Olympic mascot officially released , the organizers strongly To avoid the recurrence of similar criticisms , but proved to be the voice of criticism of the more intense .

"Look , I do not know what to say. Olympic mascots often become the laughing stock , but two mascots , ah , looks like such a ridiculous level to push a new level . " said a London public . The two weird there is still a complex image of the background behind the story is a children's author wrote it. The story explains why the two mascots have only one eye (on behalf of the camera lens used to capture things in the world ) , why there is light yellow overhead lights (on behalf of the iconic London taxi ), but not clearly explained Why are these two guys look like Pixar films often appear steel scrap . And, in fact , the publisher can explain these details for me to feel more strange things . Why the left with a guy like oven mitts ? Where their feet ? Is this design is a metaphor to express we can not escape the meaning of global warming ?

The official mascot for the children involved in the design of deeply proud , This is one to be accepted, because this design is indeed like a second-year pupils in class work . Locke and Mandeville two mascots paper looks like an integrated proposal for each child . "They should be only one eye ! " "If they karate , I shall be extremely cool ! "" I want them to fly ! " There is no filter designer to accept these views , the London mascot design is simply too complex To be added .

Naturally, the official will argue that the mascot for the children , not adults designed to convince kids to buy them a lot of adults with the so-called mascot of licensed merchandise . But this argument is also untenable . In order to meet the child and can not be a reason for mediocre design . As mentioned above, Pixar 's movies but also to cater to the tastes of children , but they are also able to make adult films resonate .

The name comes from the Wenlock Shropshire is located in the Marche • Wenlock Village, the 19th century, there have been held Wenlock Games , which inspired the modern Olympic Games Pierre de Coubertin was inspired to create . Paralympic Games in specially set up the hospital, there was the name of Mandeville .
