Original pbs logo
This is the original PBS logo designed for PBS by Ian McCausland some 25 years ago. Here's a short story about the logo and the his chance word developing Rolling Stones posters:

"I've always supported alternative radio and David Heard (Acid Country program on PBS) was always generous in his support for the country band that I was playing in at that time (Chicken DeVille). So when it was suggested that I come up with a new design for the PBS logo I was only too happy to have a go. I suppose the logo is based somewhat on the 40's style of RKO Radio Pictures and Screen Gems designs - the globe being encircled by communication so to speak. I designed it in two colours (red & black) and I used a similar lettering style to the initial logo to give this new one a sense of continuity. It has been amended/changed/added to since the original design - taken on a life of it's own sorta.

As far as the Stones stuff, I was just lucky to be asked and luckier still to come up with artwork for their two tour posters that I was happy with." see Ian Mccausland website for more information.

PBS logo 3d transparancy
I found this on a slide transparency for projecting onto a wall. Nice 3d concept.
