1st Logo (January 11, 1995-April 22, 2011)

Visuals: On a black background, a T-shaped torch flies into view and reveals a grainy wall, first orange, than a beige color. As the torch flies in, shadows are seen coming into focus forming "EPI OME" in a similar font to the torch. "PICTURES INC." is seen below the second half. The shadowy words settle, forming the word "EPITOME" with the torch. The torch rests along the wall as the screen fades out.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Fire blazing.

Availability: Can be seen on Liberty Street, Riverdale, Instant Star and pre-2011 episodes of Degrassi: The Next Generation.

2nd Logo (July 18, 2011-July 31, 2015)

Visuals: On a black background, a orange abstract flame appears and the flame lights up the room, revealing the shadows of "EPITOME" The camera pans down, revealing the real words in white and the flame coming from the "T", similar to the first logo. The flame keeps moving as everything but the flame fades out.

Variant: Starting in 2014, a DHX Media byline appears below.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Similar sounds to the previous logo.
