A public voting initiative is taking place, for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Here’s a snippet from BizCommunity.com:
“South African residents are being invited make their voices heard from today (yesterday), Tuesday, 11 September 2007, by voting for one of three designs to become the official poster of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.”
Whilst only people living in South Africa can take part in the ballot, you can see the three poster designs above, chosen from 16 entries. Alternatively, go to the official FIFA website for more info.
My personal favourite is the centre option. For me, it certainly has the strongest idea. The poster on the right actually reminds me of a pregnant woman. Anyone else see that? I do love the colour and contrast though. The design on the left is probably the weakest of the three. Still, if the London 2012 Olympic Committee opened up their logo design process to the British public, I don’t think we would’ve been left with the Olympic logo design we’re currently seeing a lot of.
What’s your opinion?
Do you think it’s a good idea to open the design process up to the public? Which of the three poster designs would you choose for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa?
Thanks to Nic for flagging up the World Cup poster story.
