PBS updated brand

Recommended Posts

They've been gradually rolling that new font out over the past couple years.  Interesting direction for them to go, changing the P-Head back to blue, but ditching the font that was actually a holdover from that era.

I don't mind the new branding so much as how PBS has been influencing local affiliates where I live with their own branding.  The two-station network that was known as Milwaukee Public Television (MPTV) is now Milwaukee PBS.  More recently, I noticed that Wisconsin Public Television, which covers the rest of the state is now PBS Wisconsin.  Has this been happening elsewhere?  I have to believe this isn't strictly local to my area.

WHYY here in the Philly area changed their logo around the same time PBS did, to something much blander.

Old logo:

New logo:

There is also this apparently, but I have yet to see it used too much

It’s not bad. I’m just really relieved that “PBS” isn’t lowercase.

The P is still backwards dernit

 

Maybe I'm missing a joke, but what's backward about that P?

The P in the current logo that has the group of heads together are the P from the early logo flipped
