"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.

Logo for flyers/posters
This is the current style of design we are using on promotional material, as it can be seen more easily and clearly than the logo above.
Oh and I almost forgot... the 2nd and 3rd logo
Now you can plot the change from original to the 2nd to the 3rd. should keep all you train spotters entertained for hours.
