The London 2012 are now less than 100 days before they start. With large events like this planning where you are going to be to see which events, be it at the event or on TV requires something and what better than a Filofax to help you enjoy the events that only happen once every 4 years.
Filofax are one of the London 2012 merchandise suppliers, they all have to be authorised by the London 2012 Olympics organisation.
The organiser it self isn't that posh, but it's rugged enough and reasonably well made. Similar to the Domino I suppose. The Sporting Icons organiser features full height pockets in the front and pack covers with colourful sporting icons covering the internal lining. The closure is an elasticated and features 'London 2012' on it.
I was more interested in the inserts that Filofax have developed for these organisers. Whilst some of the pages will be familiar to you. The business part of this organiser have been adapted and customised to suit the purpose.
The diary insert for instance is a Week Per View, but in the style of a Week Per Page on the left hand side and notes and tasks on the right hand side. At the foot of the pages are notes and facts about the Olympics including a count down to the events.
Then during the games themselves the diary changes to a day per page format, so you have plenty of room to record your memories of the games or the events that particularly interest you.
The diary then swaps back again to the Week View format after the games. It's quite a clever idea and shows how flexible a Filofax diary can be and how it can adapt to the needs of the user.
In addition to the diary there are a lot of information sheets. A page for each of the Olympic sports with details of dates and history of the events and other key facts. There is also a 'Jargon Buster' section on each sport, and at the foot of each of these pages is a 'Getting Involved' section.
The ParaOlympic games are also covered and the events for this section of the London 2012 games are also covered in the same depth.
There are then some fitness planner pages for people that like to take part in sport, not just watch it.
There is then a fold out planner showing the dates of the events and there are also a set of maps and other information pages about the history of the Olympic games
These include maps of Olympic park, a London transport map, and events map.
There are also some colourful notes pages, which you can move to other parts of the organiser of course.
The dividers are quite interesting too. Shown together here, they are labelled Plan, Play, Events, and My Events
There's two pages of stickers too!! I know a lot of you that like stickers...
The Today marker is also a unique design with key places in London included on a frosted marker.
The Lime Burst editions shown here in Pocket size are also available in Personal size too.
The pocket size organisers feature the same inserts but they have been scaled down to fit the pocket size. Like the Sporting Icons organiser, the Lime Burst editions feature elasticated pen loops.
