Reinventing the daily bulletin

AOL Rise is a ground-breaking news format, combining the day’s headlines with viral content in a neatly packaged 90 second clip, piped directly to the viewer’s device every morning. We created a vibrant, flexible identity anchored around a simple, elegant logotype.

Branding / Art Direction / Broadcast



The Rise logotype comes in two versions, to suit the various usage scenarios.


Rise Logotype

A system of ascending blocks in vivid gradients compliments the paired back monotone palette of the logotype.


Rise Icons

A suite of icons were developed to denote the various content categories.


Brand Pattern

A coloured gradient was selected to represent each category of article. These gradients were then applied to aninterlocking series of rising blocks.
