Although we still have over two years before the athletic elite descend upon Rio de Janeiro for the Olympic games, preparations are of course well underway. Along with stadiums and pools and dizzying changes to the city’s infrastructure, there's also a brand new graphic identity.
 
Last October, the London and Brazil-based design house Dalton Maag revealed the brushstroke-and-ink laden logo for the Rio 2016 games. Last week the organizing committee unveiled the individual pictograms for each game in the Olympic and Paralympic sports. Since Tokyo 1964, each edition of the Games has depicted the sports on its programme through iconic graphic symbols that reflect the culture of the host nation. Each pictogram is framed by a 'pebble' shape, inspired by Rio's curving landscapes.
