BBC Rebrand Concept

Branched from the initial thread it was revealed in

I have tried to take all the feedback in and have resulted with a couple of ideas for the main four.

*

Different colorways, arranging the "three dot" motif in different places, and overall, letting the channel personalities shine through.

Includes one without the motif, because some people didn't like it all that much.

I kinda like the BBC text in X-Bold, actually. IMHO, the second one, (the one without the three squares) has a better shot than the others. I'm actually gonna commend you on BBC Two and Four's color scheme - it marks a slightly brighter tone that the BBC Two's been showcasing lately, and in BBC Four's case, I certainly think the color scheme pays off big time.

While I'm there, I got a few questions:
1) What would the endboards and ECPs look like?
2) With BBC Two continuing the "Curve" style, what would BBC One and Four's idents be about?
3) What could BBC News's on-screen graphics (eg. lower thirds) look like?

As always, your progress so far has been spot on. Keep up the good work! Thumbs up
Ahh, the joys of TV.

Love Two's logo, and Four in purple looks fab.

I still like the versions with the squares within the C, but I see why people take issue with it.

Honestly, these are really nice mocks. I'd argue that the current logo is more simple than your BBC concept here, as at smaller sizes the C can look rather busy. I'd say just keep the BBC logo itself, but the current branding really does need changing, and this is a good example of that.

I have resulted in this - with the newer logo in place, of course.

I know that I'm not the best here - matter of fact, I'm far from it - but that doesn't mean I can't learn the ropes.

I do quite like this three dots design, feels quite simple, sleek and modern. News graphics are alright but don't fix my most hated feature of the current graphics: the logo moving up sometimes and staying at the bottom other times.

As for this graphic...

I presume those dots above the '1' are meant to be getting increasingly close together? If so you need at least 5 dots otherwise it doesn't look quite right and it looks like you might have just misplaced the middle dots.

Understandable. Razz

That's a relic from the previous version of all this - I envisioned animation being sharp cuts, accelerating movements, etc...

But I don't have the proper software to do that, so all I can do is explain it. Sad

I'll touch BBC One with this post - and from what I've been seeing, even with my skill level, I could make something better than "Oneness":

I see it as emphasizing the "circle" element, much like the original 2006 rebrand.

I literally just took an Unsplash photo and slapped the branding on it - and even then, it looks more powerful. Rolling Eyes

Have at me.

I like the BBC News and especially BBC One. Then again, anything is better than Oneness.
I don't believe that BBC World News has a clock because of it being broadcasted internationally but I like it anyways.
