Watch has the sound issues again tonight. Did they fix it since I first noticed it on Thursday and it has since come back or have they been running the channel with this problem for 3 days?

I *think* the Eden logo may have changed too but since my viewership of it is squarely nil I can't be certain.

It was a green gradient circle before, yes? Well, now it's a stylised, mostly transparent solar eclipse with faint lens flares (it's nicer than it sounds). Same font.

Idents look the same as what they used at launch with new logo plonked on but again just guessing.

Yep, tweaked logo is on the website. http://uktv.co.uk/eden/homepage/sid/5010

Something about it doesn't look right without the dots. I was never a fan of this logo anyway, but I can't put my finger on what's wrong with it.

It's just not very good.

The colours are weak and mismatched, the text looks lost, the smile doesn't come off, the font's dated (appropriateness does not compensate), the cartoony style doesn't work out of context of the idents...

In the old vintage look stakes, they've opted for naff rather than classic. And given the channel name, I think they've completely missed the point.

It may have been noticed when the logo was originally launched with dots, but do you think it was designed to look like a smiling face?


Oh, yeah... (!) That had genuinely never occurred to me before! Embarassed

I can see it now that you've said it. The "G" must be a right ear!

Maybe it was just the dots that made me not notice the face before?
