The BBC might have one of the most recognisable logos in the UK, with its iconic three boxes and distinct font. But the broadcasting company's "modern" rebrand has left the internet in total confusion. 

The BBC has announced its new branding for a number of its channels and online apps. The broadcasting company has created new logos for BBC iPlayer, Weather, Sport, News, Bitesize and Sounds. All the new logos feature three rectangle shapes, much like the BBC's main logo. BBC has also adjusted the channel logos for BBC One, Two and Four. If you fancy having a go at giving your own logo an upgrade, then make sure you check out our 15 golden rules on logo design.
