On 17 December 2005, the NOS received a new logo for the first time since 1968 after undergoing a major restructuring. All its newscasts received a new title sequence, graphics package and theme music that day, with NOS Journaal being the flagship. These were designed by Lambie-Nairn, with the theme music composed by Stephen Emmer. The classic Frutiger font was the on-screen typeface.

The main graphics element was the red ring in the NOS logo that served as “the hub of 360-degree reportage”, according to Lambie-Nairn.

After six-and-a-half years, NOS Journaal and its fellow newscasts introduced the current graphics package and theme music on 27 May 2012, featuring an updated version of the red ring from 2005, along with the popular Effra font. Designed by the Amsterdam-based CapeRock agency, with the music theme by Cablejuice, these graphics have been unchanged for eight years since then.

All the sequences begin or end with the three-beep NOS audio logo (chords: C F C).
