Live questioned over London 2012 launch

The Wolff Olins-designed London 2012 branding has been fully signed off and is not to be investigated, but the games organisers are to probe the production company behind the animated film for the logo, which was said to trigger epileptic seizures.

The announcement of an investigation by London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games this week relates to an inquiry into production company Live, which was behind the logo launch. This is not related to Wolff Olins or the branding work itself, according to a Locog spokesman.

The International Olympic Committee signed off the £400 000 logo, but did not see the animated film because it had not been made.

This week the IOC is spending time in London to look at construction and report on progress for the games. It is to meet with Lord Coe today to discuss the inquiry into Live.
