Iconic Identities – The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC)

CBC is Canada’s national public radio and television broadcaster

  1. So… that “Butterfly” CBC logo is over THREE HUNDRED YEARS OLD?!?!
    Take a look at your caption immediately below the butterfly on your “actuallywecreate” site.
    It says “CBC logo used during 1699-1974”.
    Really. Sixteen ninety nine… to nineteen seventy four. Born shortly after the Habeas Corpus Act of 1679 in Britain!!
    Subtracting 1699 from 2014, I get a time span of 315 years!! I know the CBC gets teased for being a bit of a fossil occasionally, but THAT is ridiculous!
    Was nobody proofing that page before it got posted?

  2. P.S.
    Having known several people who worked for the CBC during 70s and 80s, I have more than once heard their most recent iterations of the “radiating” logo design referred to as “the exploding pizza”. It seemed to be a CBC inside joke.
    Any follow-up ever heard on that?

  3. Employees of the Mother Corp had two other definitions for the logo:
    1 – the exploding donut
    2 – the underwater fart

  4. Maybe has some mathematician friends. His logo closely resembles the graphical representation of the mathematical equation for the absolute value of the fractional of a complex number : |frac(z)|

    See http://mathworld.wolfram.com/FractionalPart.html for the graphic.

  5. My Dad worked for The Mother Corp for a lot of years. The radio was always on in the kitchen. And it has almost always been on in my adult life. I’m smart because of the CBC. It’s been my University. Thanks for all the years of programming.
