On Friday 22nd January 2021, Channel 4 heavily promoted its new 80s drama 'It's a Sin' by theming its presentation in the style of the day. Unsurprisingly the familiar 'blocks' ident returned, but so did themed promo stings - virtually unseen today - though this time used as idents. The original clock made appearances for the day's two news bulletins, as did an 80s menu. Current presentation elements including the break bumpers, in-programme pointers and nexts used the colours of the original logo.

On Friday 23rd July 2021, Channel 4 launched its latest brand campaign to highlight what makes it distinct from other broadcasters. The main promotional film is a compilation of its most popular shows, reflecting the diversity of the UK. The tagline 'Altogether Different' has also been added to idents introducing selected programmes.
On Thursday 19th August 2021, the International Paralympic Committee and the International Disability Alliance began a decade-long drive to improve the lives of people living with disability - a total of 1.2 billion people that constitute 15% of the global population. Channel 4, who along with NBC have produced a special film for the launch which is to be shown at the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games, marked the day with idents 15% covered with purple (the international colour of disability).
