I will actually miss the idents. Yes they weren't anything amazing or special but I really liked them. I think it was more because I liked the whole 2013 rebrand. The whole new look just worked so well and ITV clearly put a lot of work into it.
I really hope the refresh is as good as it looks from the small previews we've had.
Indeed, they weren't the loudest - but they helped kick off ITV in the right direction in a branding sense from the messy 2002-2012 era.
