In Search Of … Rubicon’s API Logo

There are still people coming to this blog via queries about the AMC-TV series, Rubicon. One asked for the logo.

The best image of it is probably from episode 12, where Maggie hands Katherine Will’s card:

Basically it’s the globe on a floor surrounded by two walls.

AMC dropped the ball by not providing wallpaper of that!

    Mike, sad to see Rubicon get a clover. I enjoyed it a lot. A good shot of the API logo is in the lunchroom. I used a screen cap of it to break down my thoughts on it.

    My feeling of it was as if API had the world “in a box” and under their magnifying glass. I was cruising conspiracy sites for logos and the one I included caught my notice. I even saw how the letters of API might be coaxed from it. The pyramid would be the “A”, with the “P” being represented by the planet and the “I” would be literally an all-seeing eye. It was a bit creepy how I got that logo to fit. At the time I didn’t know the source the site got it from but eventually sourced it… from the US Gov.

    Not only that, but when I finally had the text to go with it and a description, it was all too close to my own playful bit of fun. The logo was really for OIA, or the Office of Information Awareness. Their acronym shares two letters with API and where I had the “P” as planet they used the “O” for planet. Way too creepy for just having a bit of fun trying to attach acronym letters to a logo. Here’s the punchline though. The logo was retired as their office received too many calls from conspiracy followers as to why they were “hiding in plain sight.” ;-)
