New logo for French kids channel Canal J

Canal J is a French satellite television channel with programmes for children. It was founded in 1985, which makes it one of the oldest non-terrestrial TV channels in France. This year it is celebrating its 30th anniversary, and they started it by introducing a new logo which launched this week. The logo and the graphics package that came with it were created by French motion design agency Motionfanclub.

The new look should convey Canal J's status as a premium channel. The new logo, a J in an orange square, has been optimised to work across platforms. The graphics "bounce" on screen in an innovative way. A specifically composed sound environment uses guitars and electro pop.

Previous logo.

The new look was announced on January 5, and launched January 13. Unfortunately, there is no video available at the moment. The old logo launched in 2009 and was created by Gédéon.
