Colorado station switches to new logo with Rocky Mountain reference

KOAA, the NBC affiliate in Colorado Springs has updated its logo to incorporate an homage to the Rocky Mountains.

The station had been using a rather clunky “Circle 5” logo with the numeral five “bursting” outside of the circle.

The new logo uses a similar “5,” which is a nice connection to the old look. Inside the “5,” meanwhile, the station added an abstract outline of mountain peaks, presumably a reference to the Souther Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, which sit beside the city.

The logo also switched to a softer blue color scheme in favor of the red and faux silver gray and white palette the previous look used.

The station has also enlarged the NBC peacock to be a bit larger in proportion to the number, also moving it farther to the right, which makes it a bit easier to read.
