Glasgow City Council will spend the next 100 days setting up an operating company to deliver the 2014 Commonwealth Games. A spokesman for the bid team, Glasgow 2014, anticipates that design tenders will be released once the new company is up and running.
Glasgow 2014 says that 70 per cent of the sporting venues for the £388m games exist, but designers anticipate that opportunities will arise for creating new branding, website and marketing materials, as well as interiors for the remaining venues, a planned four/five star hotel and the Olympic Village.
Scottish design consultancy Tayburn created the visual identity for the bid (pictured), while Navyblue designed the candidate city file and describes itself as the bid’s ‘brand guardian’. Glasgow designer Lynne Devine created the bid document. English consultancies Design Hive and Reading Room designed the promotional film and the Glasgow 2014 bid website respectively.
