After a long selection process, PBS chose us above a dozen competitors to deliver their first rebrand in a decade with one of the largest packages ever.
We created a versatile on-air package with over a thousand elements ranging from full live action network IDs that were shot across the country to a flexible graphic identity system adaptable for the hundreds of PBS affiliate stations. The identity included a more contemporary logo and was created and produced entirely in-house by our team of directors, designers and animators.
We also created a sonic identity that further helped bring PBS into the 21st century with a youthful, fresh approach to music.
Through a strategic process covering the better part of a year, we interviewed key PBS staff while conducting marketplace and audience research.
Our insight led us to a sonic palette that was expansive and anthemic but also warm, organic and sometimes intimate. To achieve this we recorded a live band that included a string quartet, horn section, vibraphone player, and an arsenal of toy instruments in an attic studio in Athens, Georgia.
The final package included a range of new themes and a new audio logo for the brand. We have since continued to work with PBS to evolve and adapt the thematic music, most recently employed in the Emmy-nominated PBS Kids "What If?" campaign.
