BBC reveals new logos in modernisation push

The BBC has revealed a series of new logos after the public claimed that the previous ones looked “old fashioned and out of date”.

As well as a new BBC logo, the channel has updated the identities of services such as iPlayer and BBC Sounds as well as its channels.

The new BBC logo was revealed earlier this year, and uses the BBC-owned font Reith, named after the BBC’s founder John Reith. The letters have been kerned so they sit wider apart. The redesign replaced the previous logo, which used Gill Sans.
