Epic (Canada) / c. 1952

Design: A panoramic treatment of the main line might have been appropriate, to tie the word in with film epics. This squashed-looking font, although extended, is a little understated. The stroboscopic border gives impact to the design. Bright yellow and black provide high colour contrast.

History: Launched in 1953 by CBS, which was bought out by Sony in 1988.
