KCRW Rebrand

For: ArtCenter College of Design
Role: Transmedia branding system, research, planning, design, typographic, and digital/print production.


KCRW creates and curates a unique mix of content centered around music discovery, NPR news, cultural exploration and informed public affairs. Based on research and brand analysis, KCRW’s visual language doesn’t align to today’s current audience and trends. The goal of the rebrand is to bring in a fresh, bright and bold new look targeting the younger generation while providing for its current listeners.
