Relevant quote
The logo, elected by the bid committee, recalls the silhouette of the Eiffel Tower and also suggests a number, 24, to Paris in 2024, but also refers to the centenary of the last Olympics held in Paris in 1924.

Opinion

Eiffel Tower + 24 = Voilà. A simple idea not easily doable but carried out as best as possible. The icon reads very well as both meanings and it's fun to let your brain switch between seeing the 24 and the Eiffel Tower. My only complaint would be that the overuse of gradients and colors of the rainbow make it feel like a TV channel or a 24-hour news program but the brief glimpse of the 1-color version in the images below shows that it's a strong logo when you strip away the decoration. The type is decent and serves simply as a foundation that does not distract from the icon.

Your opinion…
