What were they thinking?

The controversy continues over the nastiness that is the 2012 London Olympics logo. Mere minutes after it was officially launched, the uproar began, and people all over the UK quickly submitted their own versions (even the bad ones are better than the official one)...

Currently, there are over 35,000 names on a petition to scrap the awful design which some have called the "London swastika". Yikes! Reuters is even reporting that they had to remove their promotional video amid complaints that it triggered epileptic seizures! Double-yikes!

The only thing I'm worried about it that maybe we're all crazy and the designers are SO far ahead of their time, and 5 years from now, this style of hideous design will be all the rage.
