The Olympic rings make a perfect symmetrical logo for 3D treatment. Originally I decided to use the full colour version, but after seeing the London 2012 opening ceremony, gold seemed like the only option. The rings were drawn in Illustrator and the 3D effect was applied using the Extrude and Revolve tools with custom perspective and lighting. The font is Myriad medium and bold.
I think the opening ceremony was an amazing spectacle and I hope the games are just as successful!
