Cartoon Network UK Rebranded Today 21st July 2017

To mark the start of summer school holidays in most parts of the UK today (21/07/2017), Cartoon Network UK has given the channel a new fresh look, the channel is now using the “Dimensional” graphics package which was developed by Bent Design Lab in the United States and has since been rolled out to different versions of Cartoon Network around the world, however unlike other international versions that have a mixed Check It 3.0/4.0 and Dimensional look, the UK rebrand is a full one.

Cartoon Network UK has adapted the rebrand package to their channel, this includes making Later/Next/Now bumpers and all logo animations have been re-textured to include the new branding or replaced with Dimensional’s zoom animation. The Later/Next/Now bumpers now have a different continuity announcer and the on-screen DOG (Digital On-screen Graphic) has moved slightly more to the right this morning.

The bumpers and idents include sliding CGI and stop-motion animations of 2D, 3D and real-life models either representing Cartoon Network’s famous characters or random shapes and objects (anything from squiggly lines, eyeballs and doughnuts) in separate 3D room-like boxes. Some next bumpers also include a 2D character from each show with a different saying, this includes Ice Bear and Panda for We Bare Bears later and next bumpers and Richard Watterson for The Amazing World of Gumball. Some elements from previous Check It branding packages such as fonts and the CMYK colour scheme have been incorporated into Dimensional.

Cartoon Network Turkey Rebrands For 2017

Ready for 2017, Cartoon Network Turkey has started using presentation from the Dimensional rebrand package originally developed by Bent Design Lab in the United States. Cartoon Network Turkey are now using the rotating 3D/2D/Stop-motion character idents and promo endboards (including the zoom out and closing animation). However, at the moment, Check It 4.0 Next/Later bumpers are still being used.

Cartoon Network Turkey is slightly different compared to most feeds in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, the channel is co-owned by the Turkish Doğan Group and Turner Broadcasting System Europe (as part of the Turner Middle East, Turkey and Greece sub-region) and is free-to-air.

Cartoon Network USA Check It 4.5 Rebrand Behind The Scenes

Bent Design Lab, the design studio that developed Cartoon Network USA’s 2016 graphical refresh this summer (currently referred to as Check It 4.5 by Cartoon Network fans, officially called “Dimensional”), have uploaded a behind the scenes video showing how they developed the new graphics package.

The graphics package contains a series of 80 short animations also featuring characters from Cartoon Network’s current shows. The animations were produced in either 2D, 3D CGI or stop-motion. Various props and scenes were made with different materials for animations produced using the stop-motion technique.

Bent Design Lab, based in Portland, Oregon, USA, gathered the talent of several animators and artists from around the world to produce the new branding.
