No doubt you might have heard about the London 2012 Olympics logo outrage (£450K, caused epileptics to have fits while watching the commercials – allegedly). Can’t say I’m down ‘wid the kids’ about the current fascination with lairy graphics, 80’s-retro flourescent colours and fakey punk stuff…but whatever, the real crazy thing is that by the year 2012 the trend will be way over….does anyone really think this logo is timeless?

Driving back from somewhere random recently i saw the Brooklands racing track, with Mercedes-Benz World next to it….had a butchers….apart from the faint aura of tarted-up showroom this place was cool. Amongst the exhibits were;

-this tasty lineup of Mercs;
