The London 2012 Olympics organisers are to shortlist consultancies for the games’ design and creative services panel in the new year, following delays caused by a ‘huge level of interest’.
In August, the Olympic Delivery Authority and the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games jointly asked design groups to tender for a place on a panel of specialists covering a broad range of marketing, design and communications services. The second stage of the process, which was due to begin in November, has now been put back until 2008.
‘There was a huge level of interest in this tender. We have now evaluated the prequalification questionnaires for the design consultancies and will be issuing invitations to tender in the New Year,’ says a spokesman for Locog.
Under the design and creative services category, the two bodies are looking for consultancies that can produce outdoor media, corporate literature and design strategy
