I think it’s interesting how both the Olympics logo and the Phish logo use color. The Olympics logo has interlocking rings of varying solid colors that show collaboration but still maintain simplicity. The use of five different colors doesn’t overwhelm me or detract from the image. The Phish logo, however, does the opposite. I love the band Phish, but the logo has always irritated me. It’s usually designed in a rainbow gradient, and with the unusual shape and font, it’s difficult to read. The obnxious colors with the other visual elements just seems like too much going on. I would much prefer to see such an interesting image in black or grey or even a bright, solid color.
