Alan Clarke's Olympic Tube Posters

Many would agree that, since winning the bid for the 2012 Olympics, London hasn't exactly covered itself in glory when it comes to marketing and design.

Which is a shame, as Britain is home to some talented designers. Take Alan Clarke. Drawing inspiration from the justly celebrated examples of London Underground poster design in its pre- and post-war heyday, Clarke has fashioned a series of navigational posters to help guide visitors and locals to the various Games venues.

Sadly, the posters were created as part of a degree project, and aren't likely to be used by TfL.
