The bold graphic identity of the 1968 Mexico City Olympics in this poster broadcasts a vision of a modern and thriving Mexico to a global audience. As the first Olympic Games to be televised live in color, the high contrast of the logo’s black and white vibrating lines with bright colors encouraged spectators around the world to enjoy the athleticism of the sporting contests as well as the visual dynamism of Mexico City’s graphics and stadiums.
