Blood, Sex and Selfie Sticks Accompany TBS' Risqué Rebranding

Blood, Sex and Selfie Sticks Accompany TBS' Risqué Rebranding

US cable television channel TBS asked the Line and the Electric Theatre Collective to come up with two 10 second Idents to accompany their bold new rebrand, which has already seen the company adopt an eye-catching new logo. 

The Line pitched their ideas and TBS went with four of them: Nips, Rats, Selfie Stick and Shot Gun. Each ident features a brash new character in a controversial situation, from a scantily clad woman to a hipster being beaten with his own selfie-stick.
