Glasgow 2014 captures ‘defining moment’ in pictogram designs

Pictograms launched as city celebrates Three Years to Go

One of the most eagerly anticipated design elements of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the pictograms, are launched today. Visitors from across the globe will be guided round Glasgow by a series of revolutionary designs when the Commonwealth Games come to the city in 2014.

The 17 participating sports will be represented by their unique „defining moment‟ in the iconic images whose primary purpose is to celebrate sport and aid wayfinding to members of the public, athletes and officials. The icons will be prominent on venues, signage, scoreboards and literature during Games-time, but will also feature prominently in marketing and merchandising efforts in the build-up to the Games.

The pictograms will also be available to view online at the official Glasgow 2014 website from Friday 22 July.
