Part of a class assignment.

Sometimes the simplest answer can be the best.

Final Print: 11" x 17"

Yet Another Update: I apologize for updating this so much, but there are little nitpicky details that keep getting worked out.
First off, the olympic logo I had at the bottom had been removed. It was redundant and unecessary.

I also modified the shadows to be more "shadowy" rather than flat grey shapes.

Then, I changed the light cyan gradient to a 5% Yellow and 2% Magenta gradient. After all, these are the SUMMER olympic, so it needs to feel warmer.

I like this design a lot, as you say yourself, it does not have to be anything but simple, this one being simple also means a lot.

Though, I would say that the Olympia logo with the rings should be fully shown in some way, since it's their logo, it should not be cut off as you have did it, though, really cool effect

Great job :)

Extremely fluid and vibrant , bravo ! One thing bugs me though , its the flame . Have you tried using fewer bigger shapes to define it?

awesome though.

Came to see your 'design skills' after reading you flame '!s-n-e-e-d' on a forum.
And - Whoa, Wonderful.
Simple, presentable, visually pleasing. Quite professional, I'de honestly see it as a poster on a public board.

Pretty darn neat.

However, shouldn't the greek flag be side by side with the olympic banner rather than on top of it - or maybe vice versa. I dunno, the fact that its in greece should be a secondary pause, its birthplace, rather than the main event of the image. Its the lympics you know.

And sorry if you have gotten the same comment before; I'm not gonna read through the previous 70.
