With a fresh, simplified CTV logo and modernized branding elements, the cross-platform campaign is rolling out now across Canada. Led by the award-winning Bell Media Agency, the new campaign can now be seen via TV, digital, social media, radio, out-of-home, and cinema elements, bringing the revitalized brand to life as some of the most talked-about fall series begin streaming on CTV media platforms including TV, CTV.ca, and the CTV app. At the centre of CTV’s first major logo and branding refresh since 2011, is the new campaign the theme “GET INTO IT”, inviting viewers to engage with and personally invest in the stories found only on CTV. The execution brightens and modernizes the brand, embracing a conversational tone to connect with audiences on a more personal level. The revised logo elements have evolved to reflect a more digital language and include more colour, while keeping the focus on CTV’s signature red, blue, and green. The often playful and always bold association of CTV’s signature colours and shapes aims to heighten the attribution of CTV - Canada’s most-watched and most-streamed network to its vast and exciting array of content. CTV’s brand refresh can be seen all over social media, the internet, and in high-traffic locations across Canada, as well as leveraged across Bell Media’s considerable media assets. Here’s a quick look at just a few of the highlights of CTV’s Fall Season campaign activations, focusing on new series MAGNUM P.I., and THE ROOKIE, along with returning hits THE BIG BANG THEORY, YOUNG SHELDON, THE GOOD DOCTOR, and THIS IS US: The campaign will roll-out nationally via:
