    Even though I'm not very knowledgeable about these things, I'm really into visual idents (like TV graphics, titles animation and stuff), particularly typeface design. I really appreciate when a business or other entity succeeds in conveying a distinctive coherent visual presentation. As a child, I was fascinated by the habillage made by √Čtienne Robial in the 1990s for Canal+, the French main pay-per-view channel.



    Admittedly, it has a minimalistic style and hasn't aged particularly well. But it adheres to an impressive but flexible set of rules, which, animated by a lot of creativity, gave Canal+ an iconic look.

    Yeah, it's really a dorky/hipster passion. That did help me a little when making the graphics of my own Youtube channel, years later.

    1-Those saying dogs need to include pics or vids!

    2-"I'm really into visual idents (like TV graphics, titles animation and stuff),"

    I'm quite keen on them too - here are a few UK ones for your enjoyment!







    3 - On a similar theme - I'm also into computer graphics demos - there's a whole culture, dating back to the mid 80s for amateur productions- about 2 or 3 competitions a month - mainly in europe

    one of the earliest examples (1978)


    They have them on most platforms - c64, spectrum (there are stilll demos being made for those), Amiga and ST
    I was amazed when I saw this on my ST, back in 1991! (in full overscan - ie no borders on my tv screen!)


    and of course PCs - This one from 2007 is still one of the best ever!

    and can be downloaded from
    http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=30244
    (file is <200k, just extract, run and be amazed!)

    and as a bonus - some are done on non computers!
