Radio Milwaukee Rebrands, Celebrates 15-Years



of an organization that has 15 years of industry changing experience behind it.”


The new Radio Milwaukee branding retains the organization’s signature orange color and adds complementary cream, charcoal and blue colors to the palette. The logo system is robust and flexible, offering a variety of options for expression to work alongside Radio Milwaukee’s music, content and community outreach offerings.


“In reimagining the Radio Milwaukee brand, we wanted to achieve something that was as adaptable as the organization,” Director of Marketing & Communications Sarah Lahr said. “Throughout our 15-year history, we’ve shaped our programming and content around the needs of our audience, and we needed our new logo system to allow for that flexibility.”


The typeface in the logo is a custom, hand-rendered font called “Sidewalk Block,” designed by Milwaukee-based firm Ocupop, and is meant to visually resemble hand-painted Milwaukee ghost signs. The type is paired, in most expressions, with the “Radio Milwaukee Crescendo.” Part soundwave and part heartbeat, the crescendo represents the organization’s forward momentum as an entity that is for and by all of Milwaukee.


The station also revealed new branding and social media accounts for its original 88Nine broadcast channel. Branding will not change for the broadcast/online/HD2 channel HYFIN, which launched earlier this year, and for the online/HD3 channel 414Music.FM, which launched in 2017 during the station’s 10th anniversary. Radio Milwaukee unveiled the new branding ahead of its 15th birthday celebration, which took place Saturday, October 1 at its studios. The free, public celebration featured performances from dark-pop duo You Win !!!, hip-hop artist Kia Rap Princess and reggaeton brothers Gego y Nony. In addition to live performances, 88Nine and HYFIN DJs performed on the building’s green rooftop with sets from specialty programs Rhythm Lab Radio, Sound Travels and In the Mix. To add to the festivities, Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson read a proclamation naming the day as Radio Milwaukee Day in honor of station’s 15 anniversary.
