Spook the barn owl stars in this sequence for a new wildlife series. BBC1’s new programme Back To The Wild features a title sequence and end credits by Rebecca Harris and Jason Mullings, designers at the BBC Network graphic design department in Bristol. The titles combine live-action footage taken from the series, montaged with animating type based on medical notes taken from admitted animal casualties, says a BBC spokesman. This ‘end release’ sequence was shot on location at the International Bird of Prey Centre in Newent. The five-part series starts this week.
The project, which centres around an updated “WB” shield, aims to lay the groundwork for the company’s future ahead of its centenary in 2023.
The updated international logo is a “true reflection of the Dutch mentality” and is central to a brand strategy based around openness, inventiveness and inclusivity.
The redesign aims to attract “new, younger and more culturally diverse audiences” to the 118-year-old magazine, while avoiding confusion with The Times newspaper.
