Eén (Dutch for one) is the flagship TV channel of VRT, the Dutch-language public broadcaster of Belgium. It was known as TV1 until 2005, when it adopted its current name (from 2005 to 2019 it was stylised in lowercase as één).
Unlike most other European public broadcasters, VRT does not have a uniform logo scheme or identity for its TV channels.
A better version of this logo is needed, due to the picture quality, inaccuracies or other issues with the uploaded logo. You can help Logopedia by uploading it here.
In September 1997, TV1 got a new look designed by Lambie-Nairn (also designed the Canvas and Ketnet's logos). The new logo was a sun, "a universal symbol of warmth capable of a variety of entertaining executions".
The circles were abandoned on 2 February 2009, when a new logo and design was unveiled. The new-look focuses on the logo, which is now a glowing white sphere. The French bureau Gédéon was behind the new design.
VRT rebranded its three TV channels—Eén, Canvas and Ketnet—on 31 August 2015 with different looks for each. Eén got a new logo, graphics package and slogan (Bij Eén zit je goed; This One’s so good). The Bariol font is used in on-screen typography.
A new logo and graphics package will be introduced on 2 September 2019, almost exactly four years after the previous rebrand. For the first time since 2005, the numeral 1 is used in the logo instead of an één wordmark.
