Slinky

Red Arrow Studios is one of the world’s leading creators and distributors of entertainment content. In 2017, the ProSiebenSat.1 Group decided to bring together two of its key divisions: ​Red​ ​Arrow​ ​Entertainment​ ​Group,​ ​a​ ​global​ ​TV​ ​production​ ​network​ ​of​ ​21 stand-alone​ ​production​ ​labels​ ​in​ ​eight​ ​countries, and​ ​Studio71,​ ​a​ ​major​ ​digital​ ​entertainment​ ​company​ ​in​ ​six​ ​countries. Rudd Studio was invited to create a visual identity for the newly christened Red Arrow Studios.

In order to avoid favouring either of the divisions that were merging, we were asked to come up with something completely new. Our solution would need to reflect two things – that this was a significant, global organisation, and that Red Arrow Studios was in the business of entertainment. We presented our clients with several logos and ‘slinky’ was chosen, because it was felt that this design would best reflect these two aspects of the organisation.

A Sense of Movement

Large cropped logo symbols bring a sense of movement to the static graphics. Below is a magazine advert and the front and back of a comp slip.

 

Playful tone

We created stings and promo graphics which leave no doubt about the logo’s slinky origins. The playful tone of the animations sits comfortably alongside Red Arrow Studios’ entertaining content. Here is a five second logo sting.

New Website

We employed the new brand principles when building the new website. The home page features a full frame video clip, which is book-ended with our logo animations. The cropped logo symbols which appear across the website move with gentle parallax as the user scrolls.
