TMF Channel branding

The main Dutch music Channel TMF once started as a fresh music station, launching Dutch artists on an innovative platform. Over time, the station scrapped certain programmes and started communicating in ‘American English’. It broadcasted music videos and was packed with advertising, 24/7. This alienated the brand from its' audience and makers.
REVIVE THE BRAND
We created a platform based on (the original) values of TMF; Music, Connection, Talent Pool, Guts, Positivity.
TMF won back their relevance—a playground in touch with Dutch culture - and improved ratings renewed their marketing & sales partnerships
TMF - REBRANDING THE CHANNEL
We connected with the daily routine of the viewer. Wake-up programmes in the morning, lunchtime entertainment, party or rock shows in the evening.
As TMF is a Dutch brand, we brought back Dutch as the main language to create the voice-over, programme names and other communication.
IDENTS MADE BY THE VIEWERS
PERSONAL MESSAGE IN A VIDEO
To create an interactive relationship with the viewer,
we created a tool online where you could create your
own ‘Ident that was broadcasted before or after the
programme-content’. Choose a visual from a particular
artist, together with the text from a song, and then
personalise it with a message to a friend.
