For over 25 years, the ABC for Kids early learning symbols the Apple, the Bee and the Carrot icons have signified Australia's leading preschool brand for quality products and entertainment. These symbols are a revered standard of the ABC preschool brand and importantly a unique heritage stamp for marketing and communication campaigns.
The Hulsbosch creative solution leverages the equity in the symbols and their visual association and successfully brings it to life in a contemporary manner, enabling growth of the ABC KIDS properties and brand in the future.

I keep wanting to see Paul Rand's Eye Bee M rebus in this so I think that's a good thing. The old logo was so literal it almost had its own table of contents. With completely different rendering styles for the apple, bee, and carrot and a hallucinogenic-colored ABC logo, it was a complete mess. The new logo is charming and unifies the apple, bee, and carrot in a very charming, simple way. The typography is fine and the ABC logo integration is as good as it can get with parent companies/networks. Overall: cute!
