Ticket Passes of the 1972 Munich Olympic Games

March 1st, 2011




Ticket passes are usually the first things we throw away when passing through the entrance gates. Luckily for us the great 1972 Olympic Games Archive collected them and we’re able to see the continuation of simplicity throughout the design collateral.

As a kid I sometimes wish I would have collected things such as ticket passes. I’m sure it would have been interesting to look back at the design—if only I would’ve been into design at that age. Also it would have helped to be born twenty years earlier.
