Launched on Thursday 1st June 2017, Nickelodeon Россия rolled out the new creative design on-air and online, including the channels official social media networks.

The motto for Nickelodeon Россия is "Дети - на первом месте!", which fully incorporates with the goal of rebrand. Nickelodeon's new image demonstrates the role of imagination, creativity and play in the lives of children, combining real kids with 2D and 3D graphics to create imaginative reinterpretations of Nickelodeon’s properties and characters as they became real-world playgrounds for kids to bring to life, rearrange and redesign. From turning SpongeBob’s face into a tongue-twisted fun zone, to kids rearranging and rebuilding Lincoln Loud from The Loud House, everything from the overhead and docu-style camera angles to the seamless blend of real-world, tactile and fantastical elements, is designed to drive a visual conversation between the network and its audience. The result is an unusual and often surreal mixture of photo and graphics that kids are sure to love.

The new look consists of almost 300 elements, including bumpers, IDs, fillers, visual effects, graphic developments, and an extensive graphic package for creating promotional videos.
