Rai Channels

_____ Branding system
thematic channels


I had the big challenge to work as Art Director with the Creative Director Florencia Picco in one of the biggest and most complete projects. It’s the complete branding system for 10 thematic channels broadcasted by Rai. 

Rai 5, Rai Movie, Rai Premium, Rai World Premium, Rai Italia, Rai Sport, Rai Scuola, Rai Storia, Rai Gulp and Rai Yoyo are part of the same identity with the challenge to keep constants and variables in a single graphic package. 

The branding works with the square as main protagonist, which build the whole visual identity. The system is part of his bigger family, the one done before for Rai 1, Rai 2, Rai 3, Rai 4.

Inspired by the the swiss designers, especially the Italian designer Bruno Munari, the branding it’s developed by this basic geometry.


_____ The type


The typography used is the Neue Haas Grotesk, the digital version of the Helvetica. For his incredible readability: modern, sober and structured, that perfectly coexist with a clean branding.

_____ The grid


A simple system based on the square module, divided in a mirror.







_____ The Color 


The colors are organized by different thematic areas: generalist, entertainment, news, movies, kids and sports.

Each channel has a main color and a sequence of secondary colors as small accents.

_____ The animation 


The animation is based on two basic rules: translation and rotation that generate  a change of color.
