New logo: SABC2

SABC2 is one of three TV channel broadcast nationally by the South African Broadcasting Corporation, the state broadcaster in South Africa. A family-oriented mix of entertainment and current affairs makes it the leading television network in the country. Last week, on March 1, it launched a new look with a refreshed logo and new slogan. It was developed with South African ad agency Masters & Savant Worldwide.

Rather than having specified identity colours, SABC2 is now using four bright primary colours - red, green, blue and yellow - as a way to express the diversity of the programming and the nation. It also gets a new tagline, "You belong", instead of "Feel at home".

"“The new identity is very clean, simple, modern and stands out amongst all the channel clutter. It’s bold and fresh – everything the channel is,” says Zandile Nkonyeni, Publicity Manager for SABC 2.

Developed just over a year ago by the channel and branding agency Masters & Savant Worldwide agency, the team was keen to ensure that they showcased best new practice in broadcast design and at the same time being mindful of its positioning as a public broadcaster.
