Commonwealth games - story of the look

  1. 1. The logo for the Delhi Commonwealth Games is inspired by the Chakra, the national symbol of freedom, of unity and power. Spiralling upwards, it depicts the growth of India into a proud, vibrant nation, her billion people coming together to fulfil their true destinies. India’s journey from tradition to modernity, her economic transformation into a super power… reaching out to the world and leading the way, even as she enthusiastically embraces all the 71 cga nations and territories of the commonwealth to become one and host the best ever commonwealth games. In India. In Delhi. In 2010. LOGO

  4. 4. The colour palette for the Delhi 2010 look programme combines two of the distinctive colours of the Delhi 2010 Emblem with the official colours of the Commonwealth Games. Green: The colour that represents life, energy and high spirits. With a spring in your step, face every challenge and overcome hurdles with radiance and gusto. Purple: Combining the stable and calming aspects of blue with the mystical qualities of pink, this colour satisfies the need for reassurance, while adding a hint of mystery and excitement. Red Yellow & Blue: Commonwealth Games colours, representing the ‘Trinity of Values’ that symbolise the games; unifying Humanity, (Red) giving all athletes a chance to realise their Destiny (Yellow) and promoting Equality (Blue). Pink: This colour has also been introduced to the palette adding an element of surprise and luxury to the Games look programme. It plays to the crowd and truly reflects India in all it’s resplendent glory. LOOK COLOUR PALETTE
  5. 5. Pictograms are inspired by the graphic and simple sanjhi art. Sanjhi: a folk art used to tell stories, to decorate places for celebrations. Sanjhi: a word derived from sajja, sajavat. An art that is unconsciously still used across the country during celebrations. Sanjhi: where paper cutouts were used like stencils, as decorations themselves or to make rangolis. The pictograms use a simple classic geometry and Sanjhi styling. PICTOGRAM
  6. 6. In ancient India, in sports and martials practice, the men wore lungis - a stretch of fabric that was tied around the waist and legs. The pictograms celebrate Indian sporting culture and the living Indian sporting traditions. As an example: the pictures are of Kalarippayattu practitioners, a dravidian martial art from Kerala, India. Possibly one of the oldest fighting systems in existence, which is still practiced. It includes strikes, kicks, grappling, preset forms, weaponry and healing methods. Some of the choreographed sparring in kalaripayat can be applied to dance. Some traditional Indian dance schools still incorporate kalarippayattu as part of their exercise regimen. PICTOGRAM

  9. 9. The most visible face of the XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi, Shera truly represents the modern Indian. He is an achiever with a positive attitude, a global citizen but justifiably proud of his nation’s ancient heritage, a fierce competitor but with a true spirit of sportsmanship. He is also a ‘large-hearted gentleman’ who loves making friends and enthusing people to ‘come out and play’.
