Phoenix received a new look in November 2008. The new look was created by the design department of WDR. The blue colour was abandoned in favour of a grey design. The logo has been stretched so it has the same proportions as the newer wider television screens. The classic Avenir font is used in the on-air identity.

Phoenix introduced a new simplified logo and graphics package on 4 June 2018. It adopted a petrol-green colour for use in the on-air identity and retained the Avenir font used by the previous graphics. However, the logo bug shifted from the traditional top left corner to the bottom left, which is also used by fellow German news channel Welt.
