Rio 2016 Paralympic Games logo

In 2016, the Olympic and Paralympic Games will take place for the first time in South America, in the city of Rio de Janeiro. The Olympic emblem was launched more than a year ago, but I just watched the “brand video” for the Paralympic Games that gives an interesting glimpse of the work involved.

Official video about the creative process of the first multisensory brand in the history of the Paralympic Games, created by Tátil Design for the Rio 2016 event.

“The goal was to create a brand that could inspire people as much as a Paralympic athlete does through determination and ability to overcome. It is a symbol that reflects not what sets us apart, but what makes us equal, a beating heart with endless energy.”
