Following the constant reminder of generally how messed up athletics is, e.g HE/SHE MAN LADY it leads nicely to our awful 2012 logo. I can understand the concept behind it which is cool yet what poor execution!

Interesting use of both colour and typography, stemmed from the idea that your brain fills in the gaps, in my opinion it makes a nice static print, by covering up all but one line it becomes much harder to understand and according to the artist, adding one more line of type makes the piece much less comprehendible.

A website i stumbled across is hex day where it encourages you to chose a colour each day the below quoted explanation explains.
Jon Sykes: Hexday is "a social experiment in color picks" I guess that's what I'd say. It's hard to say really. It's evolving. Originally it was probably more of a test web app. I was just starting to use CakePHP (which is awesome by the way) for my personal project web apps, and I came up with an idea that if you allowed people to pick 1 color and only 1 color every day, what would they pick. So I built a web app around the idea.

Wearing red makes you win sport!
Man utd seem to have a fairly strong track record with the colour as do arsenal as do china iin the olympics, 51 golds! the top 10 overall medal winning countries have the colour red in their natural colours, a beautiful accident or is their a trend?
apparently there are two sides to the brain, color and visual elements activate the right side of the brain, your emotions, and the printed words effect the left side of the brain your logic. Hence typography and colour being the fundamentals behind good design and hence when you try to read these piece above its rather confusing!! It is something i am interested in but this is a little two psychological for me, i am interested by spurring a reaction like most design should but i do not want to look to deeply into it.
Colour is the main selling point for the sony bravia, a series of very clever and colourful adds where created, despite the selling point and subject being colour the advert reflects very well an idea of fun quality and attention to detail and more obviously imaculate execution, all things one might look for when buying a tv.
IPOD's gone all grown up is it that they feel they should now be targetting a new market, getting the ever reluctant older generation into technlogy or is it simply that they feel these are better colours and their original buyers will replace there old items. Why isn't there a bright blue mac book pro, personally i prefer the older colours! I always feel the smaller the item the brighter the colour it should be purely for the practical purpose of not loosing it!
