Known to all Danes simply as DR, the Danish Broadcasting Corporation is the official English name for Denmark’s public broadcaster. Founded in 1925 to operate the radio monopoly, it extended into television in 1951 when it launched Denmark’s first — and, for many decades, the only — TV network. Today it operates six national TV networks, ten national radio networks, eleven regional stations and a series of related services. This year DR is making major changes to its schedules and overhauling some of its TV channels and in January it revealed a refined logo as part of a new identity system designed mostly done in-house, spearheaded by Anders Thulin, DR’s design editor, who, along with typographer Elias Stenalt Werner created the new corporate logo, while custom typography for service logos was created with Copenhagen-based Kontrapunkt. In-house agency DR Design drew up guidelines and applied the new identity system for various media.
Announced this month by Hawaiian Airlines, Ohana by Hawaiian will be a new über regional airline between the islands of Moloka‘i and Lana‘i flying in adorable-looking, 48-passenger ATR42 turboprop aircrafts. The new name — the Hawaiian word for “family” — logo, and livery have been designed by renown textile and apparel designer Sig Zane (and son). Before we get to the rest of the post: my apologies for the crappy logo image above; there is no clean image anywhere of it.

Established in 1922, Jaguar is a British luxury car manufacturer that makes real pretty and expensive cars. Jaguar is part of Jaguar Land Rover, which in turn is owned by Tata Motors. This week, Jaguar introduced a new marketing campaign created by Spark44 — a communications agency owned in part by Jaguar Land Rover — that “is driven by the belief that Jaguar makes the world’s most instinctively rewarding performance cars,” and aims “to increase awareness of the brand amongst a new audience in line with the brand’s ambitious future plans.” With it came a revised logo and corporate typeface.
