New logo and branding for Animal Planet

Animal Planet have unveiled a major international brand refresh. What do you think of the new look?

The Discovery Network's Animal Planet channel has launched this new logo, with a 'missing' M that will be replaced by a series of animals and presenters across a series of ads, idents and bumpers.

NEW LOGO: Animals and humans move in to fill the gap left by a missing M

Using the strap line 'Surprisingly Human', the new identity was crafted by Discovery's in-house studio Discovery Creative and will be used across all of Discovery Network's international regions.

OLD LOGO: In place since 2008, this green logo will now be retired

Federico Gaggio, VP executive creative director of the Discovery Networks, said: "The creative strategy behind the bold new identity was to bring our surprisingly human brand promise to life, observing how animal behaviour often reflects human behaviour, providing an entertaining insight into the nature of our programmes, which are about people as much as animals."
