SBS brings audiences a world of difference


SBS brings audiences a world of difference

8 February 2019

News Release

SBS has unveiled its new brand position, a world of difference, encouraging all Australians to embrace and celebrate difference, and reinforcing SBS's commitment to contributing to an inclusive society.

Jane Palfreyman, Director of Marketing, SBS said: As we've grown up as a nation, so too has SBS, speaking to and representing all Australians. Along the way, we've become one of the most trusted Australian brands and an ingrained part of this country's culture.

Our new brand identity reflects SBS's evolution while beautifully articulating our fierce dedication to go beyond simply showcasing diversity to celebrating our collective differences. We want to live in the skin, walk in the shoes of others, because we believe it actually makes for better entertainment.

The new creative direction takes a more inclusive approach to addressing audiences, making SBS's diverse content offering instantly recognisable across television, radio and online. A fresh look and feel features a visual system of subtly moving layers combined with a colour palette inspired by the natural world.

The new SBS brand identity will roll out across the network tomorrow, just in time for Eurovision- Australia Decides, which will broadcast live Saturday 9 February, 7.30pm AEST from the Gold Coast.

A marketing campaign will introduce the new SBS brand position to audiences, reflecting SBS's proud heritage and encouraging Australians to explore the world through great entertainment.

Featuring Janice Petersen from SBS World News, sports commentator Lucy Zeli? and Destination Flavour's Adam Liaw, the campaign highlights the network's distinctive offering across news, sport, drama, documentaries, food and languages. It will run across SBS's owned channels including television, online and social platforms.

The updated brand was developed and created internally by SBS.
