iam8bit is a video game media, merchandising, and publishing company founded in April 19, 2005 by Jon M. Gibson. It originally started as a pop culture art show in said date and would grow to produce memorabilia such as T-shirts, special edition cover arts, and box sets for various games.

Logo (July 14, 2022-)

Visuals: It starts off on a red-tinted TV screen. A pink semi-speedometer and a progress bar are drawn and given a pixel effect after that sequence is complete. While the progress bar fills up, the hand on the speedometer turns to the right. This brings the camera out of the screen and shows a raspberry pink robot made up of two monitors. The top one has a simplistic face inside and two antennas with electricity within the spark gap, while the other features the icons from earlier. The robot flies away from the screen and reveals a white background alongside "iam", "bit", and "PRESENTS". The former two words slide away from the near center to make room for the robot to sit on. When it lands there, its two monitors make contact with each other, and the bot looks at the text and then the screen.

Variant: On Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum, an 8-bit version of the logo is presented. Hot pink and black are prominently featured with the company name having a partial and diagonal checkerboard fill set to the former color. Meanwhile, the robot's electric spark is teal.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: Electric buzz when the speedometer and progress bar are drawn, followed by several ascending popping noises when the latter fills up. An ascending whoosh plays as the robot flies away alongside faint electronic noises for the rest of the logo.

Availability: Seen on Escape Academy and Garbage Pail Kids: Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum.
