The Significance and Values of the CaribeVisión Logo



We are living today the most exciting times in telecommunications, with so many options to enjoy in a variety of platforms, but none more rewarding, stimulating and thrilling than television.

Throughout my professional career as developer of television networks and high profile productions, I have dedicated my life´s work to this wonderful medium, turning it into a very personal and never-ending journey while researching and fulfilling the needs and expectations of an ever increasing, thriving and demanding Hispanic audience.

As we commence a new voyage into new television horizons our individual efforts must be united towards a unique goal behind the emblem that will represent us no matter where we are, who we are or where we go. Today is when we have the extraordinary and incomparable experience of discovering our very own distinctive identity, our logo, and the reason why we call ourselves CaribeVisión.

From its original conception, CaribeVisión has been totally designed with the idea of offering a new and viable option in the airways. A special place where the audience can tune in for great entertainment knowing that they will enjoy high quality and exhilarating programming every time they do it. The quality of our shows reflects highly on the quality of our people and our staff. The CaribeVisión logo has also been designed with this attitude and feeling precisely.

You will notice that our logo has the shape of an umbrella; each color banner separated by white panels providing enough space to be appreciated from all angles. The variety of colors remind us of the multicultural heritage and rich diversity in the performing arts of our Hispanic nations and the valuable contributions generated through the years in the development of Hispanic television of the past, the present and for the future. The white panels bind the colors together as peace binds our different nations together for the better of mankind.

Our logo is dynamic and moves, just as we are. It can be utilized in an infinite number of scenarios, and it also represents our commitment for the protection of the enviroment we all share under the power of the Sun.

The CaribeVision logo is OUR logo, but we must share its meaning with everyone we meet. It is for us to wear proudly, to respect and protect within the parameters set by this style guide and to integrate it everywhere we select for it to be displayed.

We invite you to read this style guide to understand better the importance of what our logo and CaribeVisión represents. Your special attention to the information presented in this booklet will be greatly appreciated.
