The pictogram system, designed by Gerhard Joksch under the supervision of Design Commissioner Otl Aicher, originally for the Munich Olympic Games, was intended to be easily understandable and accessible to every visitor, irrespective of their native language. The visual identity for the Munich Olympics and the pictogram system has endured way beyond the 1972 Games. It is now considered a benchmark in visual identity and graphic design.
We have a range products that will use some of the pictograms - with our own Modernist Society spin.
