Established in 1923, Czech Radio (Český rozhlas) is the public radio broadcaster of the Czech Republic with four national stations — Czech Radio 1 - Radiozurnál (news, current affairs and music); Czech Radio 2 - Praha (entertainment and education); Czech Radio 3 - Vltava (cultural station); and Czech Radio 6 (analytics and current affairs) — as well as four specialized stations — Czech Radio Rádio Česko (news and current affairs), Czech Radio D-dur (classical music), Czech Radio Radio Wave (for young listeners), and Czech Radio Leonardo (popular educational service) — plus thirteen regional stations. In February Czech Radio introduced a new identity designed by Prague-based Marvil.

Provided quote: “The corpulent word BRNO bears characteristics of the exterior shape of the terminal building and aircrafts. Broad in appearance and causing respect by their size. In contrast to monolithic, compactness and organicity was put the word AIRPORT, of which design draws inspiration from very rugged interior of the building and also represents airiness and technicality. The graphic symbol brings an element of the airport to the logo itself — a take-off and landing of aircraft on runway.” (Provided description).
I kind of hate describing destinations as almost anything I can say is obvious. So, the Czech Republic: in Europe, pretty. This month, the Czech Tourist Authority (CTA), revealed the winner of a “tender” — the Europeans way of a) saying Request for Proposal or b) asking for spec work — issued in April to create a new marketing logo to promote the country. From a shortlist of six proposals that you can see here, the CTA along with “representatives of the Union of Graphic Design, partners and sponsor,” plus “representatives of the Ministry for Regional Development, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Czech Centres,” selected the work of Prague-based Marvil and awarded them a prize of CZK$2.5 million (US$119,000).
Established in 1969 as a central body of the state administration of the Czech Republic, the Czech Statistical Office (CZSO) gathers, analyzes, and publishes data about the Czech Republic. More specifically, its mission is to “[yield] a reliable and consistent image about the state of the arts and development of the society according to developing needs of users of statistical service in conditions of changing environment.” CZSO achieves this by publishing documents, hosting conferences, and engaging the public and the media. At the end of last year, as the result of a contest, CZSO introduced a new identity that is now being rolled out in full, designed by Prague-based Toman Graphic Design.
Established in 1992 but with origins as far back as 1953, Česká Televize (Czech Television, CT for short) is the public television broadcaster in the Czech Republic with four channels: CT1, for general purpose programming from movies to series to news; CT2, for documentaries and history programming; CT4, now CT Sports; and CT24, a dedicated news channel. Earlier this month, CT introduced a revised identity designed by Prague-based Studio Najbrt that will roll out in September.
