Did Billie Eilish Design the 2028 Olympics Logo?

The Summer Olympics are coming to Los Angeles

September 3, 2020

Billie Eilish fans are marveling at just how much influence the 18-year-old superstar wields, after the Olympics Committee released an alternative logo for the 2028 Summer Olympics, designed by Eilish herself.

Splashes of neon green mesh briefly expose Los Angeles’ “A” in a GIF posted by the Los Angeles Times. It’s an on-brand statement for an anti-establishment artist.

“The font is the font I use for my logo,” the “Bad Guy” singer explained in a promotional video for the project. “And who knows if that’s going to be relevant in my life in eight years? But I have this whole thing about not wanting to please my past self or my future self. It’s all about pleasing your present self.”

The Olympics Committee settled on an official logo for the games, but propositioned numerous LA-based celebrities to design alternative versions that spoke to personal aesthetic. Olympic stars like Gabby Douglas and Adam Rippon submitted their designs. Even actor Reese Witherspoon contributed to the project.

Eilish’s influence has spread over the past year. Following her emotional performance at the Democratic National Convention, fellow super star Miley Cyrus released a jazzy cover of Billie’s newest single, “my future." Miley brought out the flapper girl vibe in a performance for BBC Radio 1.
