New logo for the Commonwealth Games

09 Mar 2010

The new logo for the 2014 Commonwealth Games has been unveiled in Glasgow.

The Evening Times reports that it's taken nine months, eight people, three offices, and £95,000 and this is the result - the new brand logo for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

The new design was unveiled at a ceremony in Glasgow yesterday in front of more than one thousand invited guests at the Clyde Auditorium.

Clyde Waterfront will see considerable development work take place in the run up to the Commonwealth Games, with the new National arena and a number of hotel developments in the area.

More than 60 design agencies from around the world competed for the contract to design the logo, with Glasgow-based Marque Creative eventually being chosen.

Robert Smith, chairman of the organising committee described it as a "new icon for Glasgow". He said: "2010 is a year in which very visible progress towards the delivery of the Games will be evident. The National Indoor Sports Arena and the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome in the East End will start to rise up out of the ground and the site for the Athletes' Village will be cleared. We will all witness these tangible signs of progress."
