At 6am on Monday 14th January 2013, ITV unveiled its new identity across all its outlets including broadcast, online, its studios and distribution. At its heart is a new logo designed in-house by ITV Creative in collaboration with design specialist Matt Rudd, and type specialists Fontsmith.
For its flagship channel, the most noticeable change is its renaming back to just 'ITV' - dropping the '1' introduced back on 11th August 2001. Its idents convey scenes of day-to-day life of the British public, and they are overlaid with the new logo which magnifies the predominant colour of the area behind each of its sections to create an ever changing image. It is aimed to have a broad, ever increasing range of idents to reflect the mood of the day, the season or time of the year.
At Christmas 2013, Mums on the Run, Night Cyclists, Log Fire and Ice Scraper returned to supplement the Christmas idents, with the rest of the set airing again from 2nd January 2014. For 2014, all the first set of idents have been edited so that the ITV logo appears sooner, and stays on throughout - in the manner of the second, third and fourth sets of idents.
