Peter Saville's M for Manchester 
Manchester Online reports today that the new logo designed in 3 weeks by Peter Saville for 50 grand is to remain under wraps until Saville is reassured on how the logo, based on the letter 'M', is to be used. The logo is one of Saville's first pieces of work as Manchester City Council's Creative Director. He is quoted as saying "What is the point of a logo? London does not have a logo, nor Paris and they seem to be managing. What do you do with one, apart from put it on a balloon and float it above the town hall?"
