Icons on the Telegraph online
February 3, 2012

The icons for the Olympic sports section on the Telegraph online cram a lot of information in to a tiny space, something that is always a tricky challenge. I thought it was worth highlighting. Not only do the graphics work work in such a small area (c.38px x 38px), the colours used are striking too. Really like the yellow being used as a simple yet clear navigational tool connecting the ‘hovered image’ with the text box below the icons:

The reason I was on the Telegraph was due to the latest Olympic logo controversy: Madrid launches bid for 2020 Olympics with bizarre logo that says 20020 (the icons are in the right hand navigation panel).
