The Allotment create a new brand identity system for 43 UK radio stations.

Bauer Media, part of Europe’s largest privately owned publishing Group has today announced a new multi-platform brand identity system for its Bauer Place local radio portfolio across the UK. The new identity system and brand, designed by The Allotment, will be applied to more than 17 regional radio brands and more than 43 individual radio stations.

The new identity system with ‘YOUR’ at the heart of the concept communicates the core ‘Closer To You’ brand proposition of Bauer Place. It will be used to promote and emphasise Bauer’s uniquely engaging approach to the delivery of news and entertainment based on a deep understanding of their local radio audience.

Paul Middlebrook, Managing Partner of The Allotment said: “It’s early days but we are excited by the prospect of this identity system reaching out to millions of radio listeners. We have created a simplified and cohesive brand structure for a radio portfolio that has grown organically and significantly in the last decade. The ‘YOUR’ concept will be applied from January 2015 and will be bought to life with the ‘YOUR’ graphic acting as a window for local content messaging. The gradient colour system has been designed to differentiate the two or three radio channels in each region.”

"This was a challenging brief but we are delighted with the outcome. It is a multi-platform brand identity that is vibrant, cohesive and really unifies our extended Place local radio offering while maintaining what’s at the heart and soul of every single local Bauer station – their relationship with their listeners and their locations."
