Vancouver 2010

Check out the official poster set of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. I love the fresh color pallet and graphic treatment. The posters are one of the most coveted collector’s items of the Olympic Games and has had a place in history starting with the first Games poster in 1912. There are also a lot of other cool things you can get in the store as well, my favorites our in the kids section.

The Vancouver 2010 official poster represents both the beauty of the Host Region and the spirit of Canada’s Games. Cropped within the shape of a maple leaf, the bold Vancouver 2010 graphics are inspired by Canada’s cultural and environmental diversity as well as the energy and spirit of the Canadian people.

For the first time in history, both the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games official posters are represented in a unified manner; when displayed together, the two halves of the maple leaf join to create a whole.

Created by hand using paint and mixed media prior to digital composition, the techniques employed to produce the original piece of art complement the modern and dynamic style of the Vancouver 2010 graphics.
