Inspired by the London Olympics, Athens based Greek designer, Charis Tsevis has created these magnificent typographic illustrations. Each piece creates the illusion of motion..........................

Let the party begin!
Gymnastics and the opening ceremony


Tsevis uses 2 main colours, magenta and light blue. "I wanted to transmit the happy feelings of celebration for the opening ceremony". His gymnast certainly does that for me.

 

 

Back to where it all started!
Soccer returns to its birth place.

 Tsevis uses more aggressive punk rock forms for his tribute to soccer returning to its birthplace.

 

 

Dream city
Basketball

 "The third illustration is about Basketball. Talking about Basketball and the Olympics we cannot help but think of the original USA Dream Team of the 1992 Barcelona Olympiad. This is why I have chosen an African American athlete for this illustration as a reminder of that time. Red white and blue colors have been chosen for obvious reasons".

   

Reaching new heights!
Long jump

Soccer or Basketball are great but Athletics is the king of any Olympiad. These sports are closer to the noble spirit of the original Olympic games as they have been introduced to the world by the Greeks and later by the Romans. I have chosen two of the most popular sports for my experiments. Long jump was one of them

 

 

 

Chariots of color
Running for the gold and for the honor...

 "Creating graphics for the Olympics cannot be complete without a runner. This is my version of the chariots of colours... I have chosen the Cuban born Italian athlete Libania Grenot to tell a modern story about gold, honour and discrimination".

This is the current logo for the London 2012 Olympics.. I DON'T like it at all compared to the ones above.
