Deconstructing SOCA

`If you’re launching yourself as Britain’s FBI and say you will make the lives of organised criminals “hell” then you need a dynamic logo to match the job.

The Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) has chosen a fierce big cat bearing its fangs and leaping over a stylised silver globe, with a crown capping it all.

It’s bold but bears a striking resemblance to the logo of the 1980s children’s cartoon series Thundercats. So was the comparison to the show – which featured humanoid cats battling evil mutants in the Earth’s distant future – intentional? Soca declined to comment.’
