‘Access Hollywood’ refines typography, switches colors along with reverting back to old name
NBCUniversal’s syndicated entertainment program that was formerly known as “Access” — that was also formerly known as “Access Hollywood” is becoming “Access Hollywood” again — and along with that change comes a new logo design.
The new logo returns the show to the same layout it used before the name change, but with some typography updates.
“Access” remains shown with a capital “A” followed by full height lowercase letters, but the font is slightly less “rounded” than before and a bit more geometric.
The world “Hollywood” is still parked under “Access,” but becomes the same width as the line above it and also switches to a less rounded font.
The design retains the “slash” that separates the logotype from the star icon.
In addition to a new color scheme of a brownish-gray and red (think red carpet), the star now features two distinct segments with slightly different gradients.
In addition, the star itself has moved over so that it now intersects with the slash.
