27 Media Labs that aren’t the MIT Media Lab

While Googling for the Media Lab logo the other day, I came across several pages of results with the logos of other Media Labs. As everyone appends ‘Labs’ to the title of their organizations, a gold rush for laboratory beaker clip art has emerged. Here are 27 other scientific workshops of “media”, including a bonus logo of the now-defunct Media Lab Europe (think Euro Disney). Behold!

  1. \”Mih\” is dangerously close to \”Meh.\”
    The Dunkies color scheme on that one is just icing on the–er–doughnut.

    Are the symbols for film, photography, music and \”next page\” (!) in the DML logo going into a trash bucket?

    A logo with beakers ought to be in every middle school media literacy curriculum to illustrate the parallels between Snape Science and the social media industry.

    The pink logo reading \”future media lab\” is obviously lifted from an infant onesie and given as swag with an infant iPad.

    The bubbles coming out of all but one of the beakers raise an interesting question about the Craft BM that will dog nutritional anthropologists of the future.
