ITV rebrand rolls out
ITV is rolling out its new identity across all its five UK channels, its production studios and its digital offerings.
The new identity, which was unveiled in November 2012, has been developed by the in house ITV Creative team, working with Rudd Studio and Fontsmith.
The five-colour ITV logo has been designed to adapt and blend to the tone and colour scheme of its background.
As well as the main ITV identity, which replaces the previous ITV1 logo, new identities have also been developed for digital channels ITV2, ITV3, ITV4 and CITV.
All channels now have new, bespoke idents, for example ITV3, which shows the broadcaster’s drama content, has stop-motion idents featuring hand-cut paper scenes, while the idents for children’s channel CITV feature scenes drawn by youngsters.
ITV creative director Phil Lind says, ‘Idents play an important roll in navigating viewers to the next show as well as providing a clear brand positioning across the network.
‘Rather than having a small range of idents we are going to have a much broader, more eclectic range.’
The branding is also rolling out to ITV’s website and online ITV Player, while ITV’s news programmes feature new opening titles and on-air graphics, designed with Lambie-Nairn, and studio designs, created with Simon Jago of BDA Set Design.
