MTV Uutiset (first era)



The first Kymmenen uutiset newscast aired on 1 September 1981. The first logo for MTV's news division consists of simple, light blue logo with 12 dots, two hands and the black text logo below. This logo is seen later as part of news graphics between 1988 and 1990 despite its new silver incarnation of the clock logo seen in the intro.

Following the debut of a new channel look developed by Novocom on September 6, 2001, the design agency has also created new graphic assets for the commercial tv station's news division. The channel logo featuring an owl's eye design created by Jeffrey Dunaj, is implemented on newscast intros.

This logo for MTV Uutiset was introduced during the major networkwide rebrand of MTV in November 2013. A new on-air look for MTV Uutiset was introduced along with the rest of the network.

MTV Uutiset underwent a minor rebranding in 2018 with the graphics being slightly changed. The new idents are similar to those used by the Israeli TV channel Eser from 2017 until its closure in 2019. The circle around the word ‘MTV’ was removed for MTV Uutiset, but remains otherwise.
