Nagano.

The NBC Olympics website is growing on me but it still doesn’t stand up to the Studio Archetype creation for the 1998 Nagano games. That website was so expertly done. I used to pour over every page in admiration of the design and architecture. It was a better marriage of sports data and design that has not seen its equal since.

Speaking of Olympic design. The Team USA Beret is pretty nifty, but I would rather have something with that cool Canadian logo. Their whole appearance package is very nice. Other team looks that are looking good: Germany, Netherlands, Austria and of course the USA. Who can go wrong with navy blue?

UPDATE – I realized that unless you were around in 1998 you might not have seen the Nagano Olympics website. Tonight I have added the first feature of Local 415: 1998 Nagano Winter Olympics Website Review.

Have fun.
