    How can they expect to approach young people when they're using the logo of a television show that ran 35 years ago?

    Read the link and look at the image I posted, Wolff Olins really did come up with it after looking at the Tiswas logo.

    Im not sure what to think of the promotional video. Parts of it are awkward and parts of it I really like, but out of a sense of nostalgia because its exactly like the opening credits to Saturday Morning Live and Kicking, which was an early 90's weekend entertainment slot for children. The whole brand has dated far behind itself right off the bat, something they should have avoided.

    You know before I saw this topic that logo was just innocent shapes. Now whenever I see the logo I see a chick blowing a dude. Thanks a lot, Cooks.

    I watched the full promotional video yesterday and the very first thing I said to June was, "This thing will spark seizure's around the country, I think I have a headache." Apparantly im psychic now.

    I can't believe they actually paid people to make this crap. First a crap logo and then a seizure inducing advertisement? This is just stupidly unreal.

    They haven't been paid for it yet, Ken Livingston has been upholding it. You'd know this if you read the articles posted. :|

    Looks like it was designed by 80's Art School Barbie. Pink Mustang not included.

    I don't think there is one Grey, the Welsh are kind of the fall guys for everything.
