Kanal 9 is one of the three TV channels of Discovery Networks Sweden, along with the flagship Kanal 5 and the women-oriented Kanal 11. It targets a young male audience. It was launched as One Television in 2006 and was renamed to Kanal 9 the following year.
This logo was designed by Dallas Sthlm and Kanal 5’s creative executive Daniel Wallmark. it was used from its launch in 2007 to the rebrand in 2014.A new slogan, Avkopplande tv ("Relaxing TV"), was adopted in early 2008. It was followed by new graphics and idents based on that slogan in April 2008. The word "Kanal 9" was dropped from the logo in the process.
Another new graphics package, the third one created by Dallas Sthlm, was launched on 17 December 2010. This time, the idents feature a 3D version of the logo in various settings, such as a meadow, a city and in water.
Kanal 9 underwent a rebranding on 3 February 2014 with a new logo and graphics package. The new logo was created by Ohlsonsmith, the graphics package by Dallas Sthlm and the music by Sergeant Tom, all based in Stockholm. The graphics feature squares set at a 45° angle.
In 2015, Finnish sister channel Kutonen (which has the number 6 as its logo) implemented a similar logo and graphics.
