The new look has been designed by Renderon Broadcast Design, a US-based packaging firm has Fox News and NBC amongst its clients. India TV’s new logo has been designed by brand strategy firm DY Works.

 

The India TV news presentation moves to a highly sophisticated double storey set, designed and executed by Broadcast Design International (BDI).
