Spike Identity

SeeingSeeing SeeingSeeing Spike has always been a brand that pushes the boundaries of the unexpected. As the national network shifted focus from male-centric entertainment to programming with broader appeal, they needed a visual expression that succinctly encapsulated the brand’s bold, disruptive movement forward.

The identity centres around a powerful new brandmark. A visual representation of approachable edginess, Spike’s new logo features clean, classic typography and a diagonal “edge” that breaks the norm, creating movement and tension. The 46.11-degree angle allows the brandmark to be perfectly balanced without stretching the letterforms. It’s simple and modern, reinforcing the tenacity personified by Spike.

Spike’s new “edge” runs across all visual identity assets. Contrasting imagery and colour are both divided and connected. A bold B&W primary colour palette compliments the sharp, high contrast identity system and is accented by unexpected and sophisticated tones. The photography is vivid and editorial, allowing the viewer to become immersed in situations and characters.

The result is a visual and metaphorical shift representing the Spike’s confident forward momentum.
