4th Logo (February 26, 2008-June 22, 2010)

Logo: On a bright gray surface, a selection set emerges and rotates. It contains four ABC circles, each with a different device inside (two portables, a computer, and a TV). When the set shows us every picture, it compresses into a single circle with an arrow, which immediately reverts to the ABC logo. Water drops appear around, and the words "start here" are drawn to the right.

Trivia: This logo is based on the 2007-2008 ABC ident, created by Troika Design Group.

  • A still print version is seen on Grey's Anatomy for NDS.
  • On Wipeout: The Game, the beginning part is cut off.

Technique: The whole logo in CGI.

Music/Sounds: Several synth jingles and tapping sounds at the background, then the ABC jingle with a male voice saying "Anytime. Anywhere. ABC. Start Here". On Wipeout: The Game the very end of the beginning is heard somehow, and he just says "ABC. Start Here".
