The exhibition Olympia: Myth – Cult – Games in Antiquity “is devoted to the ancient Olympia shrine and its cult and to the contests held there that are revived every four years in the modern Olympic Games.” If you happen to be in Berlin, you have one more week to go and see it at the Martin-Gropius-Bau.

Steenbrink Vormgeving made use of the geometric ‘O’ in Neutraface and created a wordmark with interlocking lines. This way, they avoided picturing the ubiquitous Olympic rings, and still alluded to this famous symbol.
