The pictograms for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games have been unveiled by Tangent Graphic. Using the concentric rings of the 2014 logo, the symbols reference the “decisive moment” of each of the Games 17 sporting events.
The logo (above) was launched back in March last year by Marque, it features a letter ‘G’ for Glasgow surrounded by three part circles, with a solid red outline representing the 20th Commonwealth Games.
The lengths of the yellow lines relate to the number of games 17, and the blue line relates to the number of days of competition.
The pictograms are based on the concentric rings that appear in the logo and use identical line thickness and spacing. According to the studio, the “dynamic foundation gives the pictogram both energy and motion.”
