Watch the film!

Hello! Welcome to Pymlico.
In response to this article in the Guardian, I created Pymlico, a supporter's resource which can be used FREE by anyone wishing to support the big sporting event of 2012. I have incorporated some quaint English phrases into a couple of the poster designs and given the whole thing an upbeat, positive feel.

The images below are what I've come up with so far, so please feel free to download any of the hi-res PNGs, JPEGs and PDFs. It would be great to see them stuck to shop windows, noticeboards, school dinner halls, shop counters and anywhere there might be some sport on the telly or the radio.

Remember, if you're not an official sponsor, you must not associate yourself with the official brand. Thanks for taking a look and please help yourself to anything you like.

Free The Pymlico Five!

Unless you're an official sponsor, you're not supposed to be using the five interlocking rings. However, if you want to show your support for this year's special sporting event and feel that you're missing out by not using the rings, feel free to download this version of the Pymlico logo. It has all the best bits of a logo based on coloured rings (roundness, bright colours, harmonious shapes) but without the possibility of a visit from the authorities. I'd even go so far as to say it's a more efficient use of space, as it condenses all five coloured elements into one easy to use ring. I've even thrown in a bolshy catchphrase for free!

Free The Pymlico Five: 01

We all understand that we're not allowed to use the five interlocking rings, but nobody mentioned whether we could use one big Pymlico ring instead. I chose to make my Pymlico ring out of bits of other shapes, which may or may not have been rings.
Free The Pymlico Five: 02

Oh, I see. The first one isn't quite saying 'rings' to you. Try this one, instead. It's another great way to say Free The Pymlico Five! The Pymlico Five are innocent!
Free The Pymlico Five: 03

You're hard to please. First one not ringy enough, second one a bit too ringy? How about this effort. It's a borderline psychedelic event wrapped up in one giant Pymlico ring. Why not dowload them all, just to be sure?

Viva Transparency!

Throughout the project I've been dead honest and straightforward. I've explained many times that I am trying to create something positive, that cannot possibly be misconstrued as infringing the branding regulations. I've even asked LOCOG for their opinion, and heard nothing.

To celebrate the fact that I haven't had any nasty emails and the police haven't turned up to confiscate photoshop, I've come up with two new Pymlico logos, on the theme of transparency. I hope you like them!

I've also started work on a range of entirely worthless commemorative stamps. There's a preview below!

Viva Pymlico!

So far, Pymlico has been very warmly received by loads of nice people. One of those nice people even donated a free gift of his own. Many thanks to Chef Umberto for giving us all the very shoutable "Viva Pymlico!"

Here it is to download with either a black or white background.

Pymlico 'PTV' White

Inspired by the five rings, this logo comes to you in the guise of a retro TV station identity. You can also have it without the text.
Pymlico 'Look Here' White

Now, look here! Think you might be watching some running, swimming, cycling or pointy-stick throwing? You really ought to tell people about it. They might watch it with you!
Pymlico 'Hear Here' White

It's a similar story with the radio. I'm sure your friends will want to know if you're tuning into hear who's winning the marathon. Hear here to that!
