Title: History Refresh

Graphic elements:  Blue Room invigorated the channels brand identity, and program and promotion packages, refreshing the tone, manner, execution and personality of the network while retaining equity in its core brand values. Refreshed logos and station IDs were created for all five History channels (History, History HD, History en espa√Īol, History International and Military History). Logos were also designed for History Education, History Mobile, History magazine, History VOD and HDVOD, History Special Presentation and Save our History. For the networks on-air graphics package Blue Room translated the language of the new logo creating a logo bug, promotional bugs, web throws and a countdown bug. The History promotion package includes four new endpage layouts, an animated logo button, tune in bar and transitions, line-up spots and affiliate and sponsor endpages.  In addition, Blue Room designed and created lower third identifiers, as well as credit beds and ad sales sponsor billboards for Historys in-show program effects.


Description: In creating a refreshed visual identity for History it was important for Blue Room to play off of the heritage of the logo, opposed to a complete rethinking. These new design elements became a strong addition to the logomark, connecting past to present while evoking forward motion
