NBCs new Logo

submitted on January 28, 2011 by orangearrows in "Member's Lounge"
Knock us over with a feather: NBC Universal is shooing away the peacock from its new corporate logo as Comcast Corp. takes over a majority stake -- 51% -- of the company, according to reports. But for any traditionalists who think the move is for the birds, the actual TV network NBC is keeping the iconic plumage in its branding.

Still, it's worth noting that the megamedia entity would see fit to ground one of the broadcast world's most endearing symbols. "NBC Universal," which previously had the 55-year-old peacock logo separating the two words, will now read "NBCUniversal" to reflect a "we-are-this-close" family vibe, a voiceover presentation told 25,000 NBC Universal employees in L.A. CEO Steve Burke said the peacock design was "too busy."

    We'll miss the colorful peacock, but it was in black & white when I was a kid!

    That's way too plain and boring. Guess NBC didn't see how the whole Gap logo change went down, huh?

    I'll miss the peacock. One of the memories of our first color TV was seeing the Peacock and then the Wonderful World of Disney for the first time in color. Boy, do I feel old tonight.

    IMHO whatever ad agency they hired for that logo design was way overpaid!
    (Unless the new CEO chose it himself; then he should leave such decisions to professionals Amused )
    I doubt they took a consumer poll before changing it, but I'll bet they'll get plenty of complaints.

    I mean - they want to ditch the logo - Cool. But atleast get a equally nice logo to replace it. The new Logo sucks
