  • 2011-2015: A Shed Media Group Company
  • 2015-: A WARNER BROS. TELEVISION PRODUCTION UK COMPANY (stacked and with the Warner Bros. shield) on the left.

Variants:

  • A squished version of the logo exists.
  • Sometimes, the logo is on a black background or was an in-credit logo.
  • On programmes produced by its South division, the word "SOUTH" is on the bottom left below the "RICOCHET" word, in a different font.
  • It sometimes shares the screen with other logos.
  • Sometimes, a white glow is behind the logo. This was mostly used during the ShedMedia era.
  • An animated version exists during the ShedMedia era, where the letters spin, and go reverse, before going to normal and the byline appears.

Technique: None for the standard variant. The animated variant had the letters spinning.

Music/Sounds: None or the end theme of the show.
