London Olympics Unveil Medal Designs

So here we go, the design for the London Olympics have been revealed recently. David Watkins, British artist, a model-maker for Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey is the designer responsible for the London Olympics medals.

“Its key symbols juxtapose, front and back, the goddess Nike for the spirit and tradition of the Games, and the River Thames for the city of London,” Watkins said in a statement.

Watkins was chosen out of six artists who were asked to create a design.

“The design is dynamic, full of energy and makes ingenious use of the 2012 symbol,” said Sir John Sorrell, who was part of the panel selecting the medal design. “It is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship with a crystalline, jewel-like quality.”

It looks beautiful and I do approve of the design! well done guys!
