Rebranding gone wild

14 04 2009

Not too long ago i added The Discovery Channel and Animal Planet to my subscription of TV channels. The first time I blipped to watch Animal Planet i thought I was ripped off with some cheap imitator channel when I saw their new HIDEOUS logo. I hoped and prayed that it was some temporary logo they just showed for a couple of screens, but no, it is ACTUALLY their new logo. Every time I watch the channel it really boggles my mind how they actually could go for that design…

In contrast, when i blipped to The Discovery Channel I was very pleasently surprised by their new logo. It’s a truly modernized version of their previous one, simple yet beautiful.
