BBC3 has unveiled a new logo – basically some Roman numerals mashed with an exclamation mark – and we can’t help but feel it looks a bit familiar. Namely, it closely resembles a redesign of a logo created in BBC parody W1A, pitched to the Corporation by Jessica Hynes’ nightmarish Head of Brand Siobhan Sharpe.
Maybe the meeting for BBC3’s new look went a little bit like this…
Or maybe the BBC3 team just took a bit of inspiration from the scene, as their own twitter account has suggested.

They say the truth is stranger than fiction – but sometimes they’re just really, really similar.
