With the change of SBS MTV, one of Korea's leading music channels, to SBS M, Willo led a massive channel branding from the channel's identity to logos, slogans, network design, and design guides.
Design keywords
To target increasingly diversifying TV viewers, there was a channel's requirement to reflect the music and life of the 3059 generation in a sophisticated way. New design package should be able to express channel identity in all directions with vibrant colors that can catch the eyes of many people and give them positive energy, fun and rhythmical motions and sounds, and flexible extensions. The big challenge was how much design sensitivity should be captured to not lose the hip sensitivity of music channels while capturing a wide range of target groups and diversity.
Logo Design
The logo design, which was first carried out, was based on legible lettering, but there was a request to add an edge so that you can feel the characteristics of music and entertainment genres at a glance.
The M basic type in a structural and simple form was added with the motif of light on the stage.

Two sides that symbolize Music and Life meet to create a single form M, and the shape of light surrounding the M silhouette reminds us of the birth of a new music lifestyle channel with a design that stimulates our imagination.
Color Palette
Integrate Design Concept
Key Design that integrate online and offline should be preceded by key concepts so that they can look like a single package, even if they vary according to various media characteristics. It develops an integrated design concept based on a solid shape and vivid color logo design. We developed a design methods that can show the following three personalities.

-Based on logo characteristics
-Revealing the properties of light
Design motif
Simple and intense graphics consisting of boxes, diagonal lines, and straight lines derived from logo design attributes are found in searchlights and expressed in a variety of overlapping animation characteristics. The moment searchlight shed light on new music and life, Bang! A new M is born. ​​​​​​​Key visual was established through end tags and basic design grids reflecting these elements and characteristics.
