TORONTO, Feb. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Beginning today, viewers tuning in to Global will notice a fresh change as Global launches a new look and feel
designed to reflect the networks' top-rated programming and news lineup
in a big, bold and dynamic environment.
"Global's identity refresh is part of the larger re-positioning of the
Shaw Communications portfolio of brands designed to ensure our
relevancy to both our customers and viewers across the country," said Jason Keown, Senior Director of Marketing, Global Entertainment. "Our creative is both fast and dynamic with a vibrant colour palette
that unifies our entertainment and news brands across all platforms."
Global Entertainment introduces four vibrant colours - red, yellow, purple and green - infused into a big, confident design plate as a backdrop for all
promos, IDs, on-air elements plus, off-air advertising components. The
new creative for GlobalTV.com will launch the following week. Then in March, Global News will adopt two new dominant hues of blue across all branding for national and local news properties,
encompassing set design, on-air graphics, online and off-air branding.
Both Global Entertainment and Global News will use large, bold type and
imagery with every graphic filling the screen. Two new voices will
represent the network's big, friendly sound.
Shaw Media's award-winning Creative team partnered with BDA - Promax/BDA 2012 Creative Agency of the Year - on the concept and development. BDA's current clients also include
ESPN, the BBC, Disney, Sky and NBC Universal.
