The UK's ITV1 channel is to rebrand itself in January '13, reverting back to its former name of just 'ITV' along with a new logo.

I'd love to hear what everyone thinks of the new look.

Odd choice for a color palette.

Yuck. That's terrible. Definitely not becoming of the UK's 2nd terrestrial broadcaster.

Some blurb on the new look.. interesting explanation of the palette.

In this form, the logo has four colours that are the "perfect points" on the colour spectrum. But this new logo is intended to be a chameleon and will sometimes change according to the show or channel using something that ITV is calling "colour picking".

For example, when alongside Dancing on Ice, the ITV channel logo will sometimes become purple, blue and green to reflect the show's spangly outfits. When seen alongside Downton Abbey, it will be classy grey, beige and black; and on I'm a Celebrity, jungle greens and browns will feature on the letters.


and the other channels in the group will also receive a variation on the theme, although it appears their colour schemes will be more solid. Some of the new indents sound awful.

- ITV2 is to become the "home of infectious entertainment", with the sixth biggest channel in the UK getting a "hot red" version of the logo and red on-screen identify, including new idents and 'end boards'.

- ITV3 is to be positioned as the "keeper of ITV's treasured and timeless drama", with a new "midnight blue" logo and idents that feature stories told in shadow-puppet style animation inside glass bell jars.

- ITV4, which has previously struggled with its identity, will adopt a "slate grey" logo and become the "home of sport and cult classics", as well as a "man club". Channel promotion will include pub factoids - such as "One in ten children in Europe are conceived on an Ikea bed" - and idents featuring viewer nominated "dreams come true", such as driving a Rolls Royce into a swimming pool.

- CITV will get a yellowy-orange logo and playful idents that "burp and fart, and do other things kids love".

Meh. Like most TV logos, it can't really be judged until we see what it looks like on screen.

Need to see it on screen, but as mentioned the colour palette is shocking.

At least it's definitely going to stand out from the BBC logo concept of "let's put three letters in a row and do really nothing to them but use (a) box(es)"

Damn -- never knew that was an ITV logo.

Nah, was more talking about how it could sometimes be a little tough to tell apart ITV and BBC whenever watching a match. I could be completely crazy, though. :P

I'm a longtime follower of TV Ark, so I know this fairly well: ITV has never had a good, consistent identity that has been well-received, well-associated, or well-adopted.

^I know what you mean. I guess that there's a chance this might do it, but I wouldn't hold my breath. Seems to highbrow for the channel that brought you the X Factor and I'm A Zeleb.

The problem was and is ITV doesn't know what it wants to be, it's been through phases of wanting to be a sports channel, bought Premier League and F1, then lost both, A reality TV channel, a game show channel and now it seems to be focusing on Dramas. It's the Pepsi of the TV world.

I know nothing of ITV, but I think it's a decent looking logo. I suspect it would look better in other colours, though.

Egads, it reminds me of the acid induced trippy logos a lot of networks started to use in the '60s when they converted to colour broadcast...

So I guess, congratulations ITV on becoming a colour broadcaster... :unsure:

Closing public libraries to subsidize sports teams is so damn American it makes me crap eagles.

^Soon as I read that I thought of this... specifically ATV (@ :20)



BTW for those who don't know, these are idents from some of the old regional versions of ITV before it was all unified under the ITV name.
