Rede Globo, or simply Globo, is a Brazilian free-to-air television network. Globo is the largest commercial TV network in Latin America and the second-largest commercial TV network of the world just behind ABC and the largest producer of telenovelas.
Globo's first logo was a 4-pointed star based on its station in Rio de Janeiro (Channel 4). This logo was created by Aloísio Magalhães. It is based off the shape of a pinwheel.
This is the first logo to symbolize a globe, which the current logo still symbolizes today. It was created by Mauro Borja Lopes.
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.
Globo introduced an extention to their logo in 1970. The 7 rings represented the 7 original affiliates of Globo.
Version without the "De Televisiao" text.
In 1976, German/Austrian designer Hans Donner was hired to redesign Globo's symbol. The result consists of a sphere representing the Earth (hence, globo), a rounded rectangular cutout representing a television screen, and a second sphere within the "screen". This design would later be the basis for the logos that follow.
In April 1981, the logo was given a 3D metal texture. The idents shown during the period were animated by Pacific Data Images.
In 1983, the globo appeared for the first time in full 3D, in the "Abre-Alas" and "Prédio" IDs.
1986-1989The Globo logo was given another major facelift in 1986, in which the screen has been filled with rainbow-colored gradients.
In 1989, the inner sphere no longer has a white reflection, and the metal is now darker.
The rainbow gradient inside the logo is now formed by triangles (which is mainstay up until 2008).
On April 8, 1992, the logo has taken an overhaul, with the three-dimensional spheres being ray-traced, an innovation at that time. Reflections and glows are also added to the logo, as well as the edges of the "screen" being more rounded and bent.
In 1996, the previous logo receives minor enhancements, becoming darker and earning bolder lines. The brightness is also emphasized in the new symbol.
In 2000, the previous logo receives a simplified metallic texture. It was launched on April 1, 2000, along with the "Globo Glass" series of idents, in which the logo was rendered on transparent glass, reflecting the scenery of various locations in Brazil.
In 2005, the previous logo become lighter, shinier and has its texture color "inverted" in a way.
In 2008, the Globo logo received its biggest refresh during that time (until 2014), in time for the launch of digital television in Brazil. The "screen" in the center of the symbol was modified to 16:9 aspect ratio, and the colors are now made out of scan lines. The spheres' metallic texture have also been more simplified, looking more like chrome. This is also the last logo to use the metallic texture, albeit with a more simplified feel to it. An unused version of this logo features the 4:3 screen.
On April 6, 2014, Rede Globo began using a newly redesigned version of their iconic logo, which was worked on since April 2013 and has been officially revealed three days prior to the launch. The new logo, created by Hans Donner and in-house, now drops the highly stylized metallic look in favor of a simplified gloss/gradient texture, along with a new gentle wave motion effect for the colors of the "screen".
The new logo approaches the trend of two-dimensional design, often being used by the broadcaster since 2013. Its continuous onscreen movements lead the commercial broadcaster with a new message: "Globo is moving to follow the life, the world, and the viewer."
