bread and games

This summer marks the fiftieth anniversary of the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Otl Aicher created a style-defining design system for them with the rainbow as the color palette and a dachshund as the mascot.

On August 26, as part of our initiative otlaicher100.de, we will pay tribute to Aicher's contribution and discuss the political dimension of the games.
