Vancouver ’76 Olympic Bid Logo

The Garibaldi Olympic Development Association made a bid for the 1976 Winter Olympics, claiming the Canadian nomination in ’74, but ultimately losing out when Montreal was nominated–and later won the bid–for the ’76 Summer Olympics. This black and white logo for Vancouver/Garibaldi’s near successful ’76 bid features a stylized 76 glyph, with sans-serif titling and italicized serif strapline. The presentation of this logo is in-line with Montreal’s designs, and is indicative of Canadian design at the time: a mix of international modern styling and classic typography.
