See it on the radio

Sveriges Radio (Swedish Radio) is an independent public service media corporation. Their mission is to provide indispensable programming for the Swedish population. With 4 national and 25 local stations, they reach 5 million Swedes daily.

Insight

Radio is no longer just a loudspeaker. Digital platforms have changed the way people listen, making it a highly visual medium. This brave, but alien, new world shook the foundations of Sveriges Radio, which struggled with two company names (Sveriges Radio and SR) and a shambolic visual identity. But how do you choose between a self-explanatory name and a familiar wordmark? And how to build on the listener’s deeply personal relationship with the radio stations P1, P2, P3 and P4?

Creation

Sveriges Radio was the natural, long-term choice. A favourite since 1956, the unique wordmark (SR) integrated perfectly into the new Sveriges Radio logotype and provided a key design element in the station logos. A comprehensive visual toolbox – featuring general and channel specific guidelines – laid the foundation for a broad and cohesive brand.

Change

The solution made for a smooth transition within the organization. And Sveriges Radio, armed with a new brand strategy, could look forward to being heard and seen across multiple platforms.

170.000 hours of radio – every year
