Explanation of pictograms

Pictograms were introduced in 1936 at the Berlin Olympic games and the 1948 London games. Pictograms have not stopped yet they are still going. Pictograms are the designs that were based on the Rio 2016 font, which was launched in July 2012 and forms a part of the Rio 2016 brand. The athlete bodies and sports equipment in the pictograms were built from the font’s characters, or part of them, in a continuous stroke, with variations in thickness in order to give the impression of depth. The pebble shapes, which enclose each pictogram, are a characteristic of Rio 2016’s visual language and alter their shape according to the athletes’ different movements, while the pictograms themselves can be produced in a variety of colours.
