In 2011 we worked with our friends at ABC Australia to launch ABC News 24, their new free-to–air, 24 hour digital news service showcasing the very best of the ABC’s journalism from Australia and around the world. ABC News is the authoritative news provider in Australia. ABC NEWS 24 is the contemporary, mobile and younger service that will drive ABC News forward. To define this we developed a brand proposition as ‘Get the news now’ from ABC NEWS 24. We worked closely with their in-house design teams on the user experience and rebrand of their new site. Several of our team members based themselves in Sydney for an extended period with the ABC team to ensure that the implementation and on-going look and feel of the brand, both on-air and online, was a success. The work won Design Week’s TV design of the year for 2011. Importantly the channel’s unique mix of authority and immediacy has now made it the most watched channel in Australia, beating Sky News.
