Olympic Logo Web Animation Pulled

Susan Hall

Organizers for the 2012 London Olympic Games have removed a four-second animation of the event's logo from their Web site after an epilepsy group raised concerns that it could cause seizures, TGDaily reports.


The logo uses a series of jagged objects to create the number 2012. The animation had bright colors changing multiple times within a couple of seconds.


The logo itself has been unpopular, reports vnunet.com. More than 25,000 people have signed an online petition to have the logo, developed at a cost of 400,000 (roughly $800,000 US), changed.
