Don’t get me started on the logo! Oh my god!! What on Earth was the designer thinking? It cost £400,000 to make this thing? I remembered at the time it was unveiled a lot of people were in disgust and people started pouring in their own designs to the media to show what the logo could’ve been. I think I could’ve made a better design as well to represent London! Oh well.

I’m not even sure about the mascots too…
I know they were designed by school children but what on Earth were they thinking?! The one-eyed mascot that is to represent a camera lens… Hmmmmmmmmmm… It just looks like a one-eyed monster to me. But if children like it then… Oh well. Maybe Millwall’s Lion mascot would’ve been a better choice (a redesigned version of course!), an animated Big Ben, the Beefeaters, a football, the red buses and even pigeons!! These things all represent London!

Oh well, I guess London has to go with the flow as we always do…
So I went into Argos (a catalogue shop for the UK) on the weekend and spotted more mascots being sold!

However, this mascot Pride the Lion seems like the designer took thought into this one…
I’m afraid there’s no more time for improvement… How sad…
Didn’t I say the ticketing system was rubbish!… http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-19034245
