Bermuda’s 2012 CARIFTA Logo Released

November 25, 2010

The Bermuda Track and Field Association has unveiled the logo for the 2010 CARIFTA Games – which will be held in Bermuda.

Bermuda last hosted the event in 2004, which saw the start of the rise of now record holder Usain Bolt of Jamaica who became the first junior athlete to break 20 seconds in the 200 metres, with his winning time of 19.93 set in Bermuda. Bermuda previously hosted the event on two separate occasions; 1980 and 1975.

Bermuda has the notable distinction of having the longest held record of the CARIFTA Games, courtesy of Sonia Smith, whose 1979 mark of 53.98m in the javelin has withstood three decades of competition.

    With all due respect …. that is a very poorly designed logo. It’s confusing, inconsistent and totally forgettable.

    I agree. That logo is bad. No disrepect.

    There are no words.

    Bad logo. Please find who designed it and who approved it so we know who NOT to go to for graphic design and who to shake out heads at. This resembles work I’ve seen that was outsouced to amateurs in India for $80.

    Sorry to say but who ever designed this looks like they made it in a word doc…Photoshop or some other design program is a must

    BAD!! This logo has broken just about every rule there is regarding logo creation. A classic case of what happens when you don’t use a professional graphic designer. You get what you pay for!

    Agree, this logo is poorly done! Looks like a kid from Primary 3 designed it.
