ITV mess around with logo 52 times

ITV has launched a year-long creative initiative, which will see 52 artists create animated versions of its logo that will appear on its main TV channel as idents.

The project, called ITV Creates, will see a range of creative people, including graphic designers, illustrators, photographers and artists, reinterpret the ITV logo in physical form. These will then be animated by ITV Creative, the channel’s in-house agency, and each one will run on TV for a week throughout 2019.by Katrina Russell Adams

Tony Pipes, executive creative director at ITV Creative, says the brief given to the artists was “quite open”, with the only restrictions being that their artworks needed to be made from physical objects before being animated, and that they should be based on ITV’s typographic logo.

The 52-week-long creative project aims to express the channel’s new brand message of “more than TV”, Pipes says.by James Alec Hardy
