BT 2019
Designer:  Paul Franklin
Typography:  Custom
Launched:  May 2019

On 15 September 2016, BT applied for two logos to be trademarked from the Intellectual Property Office. The coloured version below was eventually withdrawn in December 2016, with the above one registered in February 2017. The logo is set to be the centrepiece of the company's first brand shift since 2003, reflecting its move into pay-TV sports and the mobile phone market.

In May 2019, after being delayed for two years, BT officially revealed the new logo after its chief executive, Phillip Jansen, confirmed plans to rebrand the company. It was also confirmed that the new logo will roll out in August of that year. The new logo was first used on BT Sport and it has been used on the website since October 18, 2019.
