London 2012 Olympics Logos for Visio

The excitement around the Olympics in London this summer is growing, and there are many companies, organisations and individuals preparing to have associated events. Therefore, I thought it would be useful to have Visio versions of the logos available.

I downloaded the original SVG files from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:All_London_2012_logos.svg, and then opened them in Visio. Once I had them in Visio, I was able to slightly clean them up by combining some of the resultant shapes, then I renamed the shapes to make them easier to explore. I then made a single master shape, with three Shape Data rows to allow the user to select between six different official colour versions, and a custom option to allow you to sub-select shapes to format as you like.

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
