Sport Posters
Image & Identity designed 28 posters which presented the repective Olympic Sports. The theme of the posters was the Sport pictograms. Each poster could function independently. All 28 combined together produced a giant composition. They were printed in two sizes: normal and mini poster size. The mini posters were presented all together as a collection.



Artistic Posters
Ever since the revival of the Games in 1896 posters were designed by painters an graphic artists to promote the Games and demonstrate the artistic level of the host country. The Organising Committee created a panel formed by personalities of the art world and asked them to identify a list of 28 Greek artists. These artists were then invited to create a work of art especially for the Athens Games, which would be used to develop 28 posters (a direct reference to the number of the Games).

Nikos Alexiou, Michalis Arfaras, Dimitris Arvanitis, Yiannis Bouteas, Christos Caras, Pantelis Chandris, Alekos Fasianos, Vasso Kyriaki, Antonis Kyriakoulis, Yannis Moralis, Kyriakos Mortarakos, Dimitris Mytaras, Nikos Navridis, Angelos Papadimitriou, Maria Papadimitriou, Mina Papatheodorou-Valyraki, Pavlos, Jannis Psychopedis, Alexandros Psychoulis, Sotiris Sorogas, Marios Spiliopoulos, Panagiotis Tetsis, Theodoros, Costas Tsoclis, Eleni Vernadaki, Zafos Xagoraris, Constantin Xenakis and Manolis Zacharioudakis were the 28 artists who participated in the project. Their works of art illustrated 28 posters which were printed in two sizes: normal and mini poster size. The mini posters were presented all together as a collection.
