Tokyo 2020 Olympics Logo design might be a rip-off.
We didn’t care for Tokyo’s Olympics logo when it was unveiled earlier this week. Now, it appears that the design has a bigger problem than just uninspired design; it bears a striking similarity to another logo.
Designed by Kenjiro Sano, the 2020 Olympics logo features a rectangular pillar, with two triangles on its top and bottom. So does Studio Debie’s emblem for the Belgian Théâtre de Liège. There are differences: Debie’s version has white shapes set in a black circle, while Sano’s has gold, silver, and black forms as well as a rising red “sun.”
