Channel 4 has unveiled a network rebrand including a refresh of its digital channels and a new look for E4.

The network rebrand is aimed a unifying the digital channel portfolio consisting of More4, Film4, 4Music, 4Seven and E4 whilst maintaining their individual brand personalities.  The Channel 4 corporate logo will also evolve from the multi-coloured 3D design to the 2D Lambie-Nairn design. The new logos will all incorporate the iconic 4 more prominently, emphasising they are all part of the Channel 4 family.


The new E4 logo, which was last refreshed in 2013, will keep its purple colour and will have eight new opticals. There will also be 19 new on-air idents produced by a diverse mix of talented creatives from across the UK.

The work has been led by Channel 4’s in-house creative agency, 4Creative, in collaboration with selected creative partners, including ManvsMachine.
The new logos will be visible on-screen from today.
Dan Brooke, Chief Marketing & Communications Officer at Channel 4, said: “Whether you’re tuning into The Big Bang Theory on E4 or watching the latest Film 4 feature at the cinema, we want to remind viewers that they are enjoying fantastic content from Channel 4’s portfolio. The E4 rebrand also gives talented emerging filmmakers and animators from across the UK a platform to showcase their superb work.”
Alice Tonge, Head of 4Creative, said: “Our channel brands have strong visual identities of their own, but now, with so many channels and so much noise, we need more than just the number 4 to unite our brand family. With E4, in a world where online is forever changing and innovating, we wanted to create a brand identity that feels less structured and predictable, so we have 19 different idents created by people all over the UK. The eclectic mix, which all reveal the new E4 logo in different ways, are a chance to not only showcase the new identity but to remind people why they are watching E4 by entertaining them.”
