For the information of anybody who is interested, Graven Images was paid for the work we did related to the bid itself, culminating in late 1994. Glasgow City Council (pre-unitary authority) did not wish to agree terms for the continued use and extension of the marque, and eventually its use was stopped.
This all happened about two years ago, long before the appointment of Deyan Sudjic, or the formation of the 1999 company.
I should add that we are all still very optimistic and committed to the detailed plans for the festival, which I know will become an international example of innovation and good practice.
