BBC Reith-brand Mock

sorry for the pun (March 2021)

Something I've wanted to do for a while here is a BBC mock, so I went ahead and done it. The rebrand mostly uses Reith, insprired by the 1997 Gill Sans rebrand, with the only brands not using it being CBBC, CBeebies and BBC Three since I don't really feel like it would reflect their audiences.

Let's start with the TV channels.

*

You can see that the logos have their colours from their current logos (except BBC Four) unlike the Gill Sans era.

CBBC's logo uses the colour scheme from the 2016 logo with the C being split up into the 4 colours, while CBeebies just has the BBC logo coloured purple. CBeebies isn't as consistent as the other logos, but it's would be a pretty risky move to change it entirely since it has been used since it's launch and it just wouldn't work as a horizontal logo since it isn't read with the BBC part.

Meanwhile, Three, uses the current logo but without the tricon because it's returning to TV and IMO, the current logo still screams "online channel". The reason why it has a different font was because it's a trend Three has had since it's launch.

Now for Radio.

*

The Radio channels use the numerals from the current logo, with some channels being renamed. However, the names aren't my idea. I stole- I mean "borrowed" them from another concept that I liked https://tvforum.uk/thegallery/bbc-rebrand-46496.

Radio 5 Live is now Radio 5, Radio 6 Music is now Radio 6 and Radio 5 Live Sports Extra (who thought that name was a good idea?) is now Radio Sports.

You'll also notice a new brand called CBBC Radio. It's a block on Radio 1Xtra for kids 8-12 in the afternoon with clean versions of songs from 3:15pm-5:45pm. I figured that there's alot of Radio 1 and music content on CBBC and there are still alot of kids who listen to the Radio, which is why I made that.

Finally, the others

*

Not much to say here. Weather and Sport use the Reith Sans font, while iPlayer and Sounds also use it, but the first letters are their currents icons.

Tell me what you think, and I AM accepting critisism.

Great stuff here.

I don't think that 1Xtra would have a CBBC Radio block on the station.

I know the station inside and out and as it has a particular focus on Black music, so that wouldn't be an option.

CBBC Radio standalone, alongside CBeebies Radio, yes.

cbeebies needs a rebrand in my opinion

I think that you’ve got a really consistent set of ideas and I think it definitely looks a lot neater and brings each of the brands into a more modern environment.

I would say that Radio 5 and 6 look a bit simple now when you compare it to the other stations and CBBC is getting there but I don’t think it’s fully there yet. BBC Parliament in mauve feels like an odd choice but overall I really enjoy what you’ve done.

Working on a new design now

I've redone the children's channels and their radio counterparts.

Let's start with CBBC.
CBBC's design is now more identical to the 2016 logo, being altered to look more like a C and some of the parts are brighter. The BBC part is now purple instead of black. CBBC Radio is now a Radio 1 block airing from 3.15pm-5:45pm. I feel like a full-fledged CBBC Radio station would be a risky move, but it could happen in the future.

Now for CBeebies.
I start in my previous concept that a CBeebies rebrand would be too risky, but I've realized that the 2002 logo is a tiny bit outdated. It's still bubbly and uses a yellow/purple colour scheme but more fitted for the modern logos. CBeebies Radio uses the same font, with a music symbol on the I.

Tell me what you think Smile.

I like the Cbeebies one. But not too convinced on the CBBC logo - very odd spacing and sizing.

Thanks. Assuming you mean the size of the C, I did that to put more emphazise on it. I found making the BBC logo the same size to look a bit off.

The spacing looks quite odd too. I think it would look better for CBBC to be written above the BBC Logo

- That looks cool, but the main logo still uses Gill Sans.

- The font-weight looks a little bit bold for all of the logos (except CBBC and CBeebies).

- BBC Two's new color is not blue, it's viridian/teal just like BBC2 in 1991, but I will suggest changing the color.

- BBC News's new color looks like blood red, but I suggest making the color bright.

- BBC Parliament's new color is lavender purple/lilac, but I suggest making it gray/grey.

- BBC iPlayer and BBC Sounds didn't fit very well in my opinion.

- The second concept of CBeebies looks ugly, and the font looks like modified Frankfurter, but I prefer the first one better.

I will give you 3/5. Anyways, keep up the good work!

Tried that, but I never knew how make it look good. I'll see though.

Just realized that BBC News is alot darker than the normal logo. I'm gonna make it darker.

As for CBeebies, I used a font called "Dunkin" which is used for the Dunkin Donuts logo (It's free for personal use) since the bubbly, curved artstyle would fit a preschoolers but I can change that.

I wanted iPlayer and Sounds too still be consitant will Reith, but still use their icons. I COULD use the current logos though.

And the Reith font, it was like that when I downloaded it, I don't really know how to make it lighter Razz
