The initial emblem for Antena 3 was introduced in 1989 and stayed with the brand for almost three years. It was a bright red and white badge, designed by José María Cruz Novillo. The logo was composed of a bold lowercase “A” in red, and a digit “3” in white, overlapping the letter. Above the symbol, there was a white “Television@ lettering with a thin black outline, and under — “Antena 3” in red lowercase sans-serif.

1992 – 1997

The redesign of 1992 brought a completely new image to the Spanish tv channel, giving it the emblem we still can see on the screens today. It was designed by Jose Giménez de Pueblo and boasted a stylized abstract emblem, composed of three geometric shapes in different colors, which formed a letter “A” in the negative space. The elements were colored dark blue, red, and yellow, looking delightful and memorable. As for the inscription, it was written in the title case of a classy serif font, in black, and placed under the modern and cool emblem.

1997 – 2001

In 1997 the logo was simplified and refined. The tricolor emblem was now enlarged and the inscription in the iconic Garamond typeface was shortened from “Antena 3 Television” to just “Antena 3”. The lettering became bigger too, adding confidence and creating a more harmonized look of the whole logo. As for the color palette, the abstract badge was still executed in blue, red, and yellow color but now the darker shades of these colors were used by the channel.

2001 – 2002

As for the lettering, it was still executed in Garamond, but now in its narrowed version, which was more tender and sophisticated, perfectly suiting the new color scheme of the badge.

2002 – 2004
