New York, New York, September 27, 2011 - Creative Studio Trollbäck + Company was most recently an integral part of the brand design for DirecTV's latest initiative, the Audience Network. Formerly known as the 101 Network, the Audience Network launched summer 2011 and is available exclusively on DirecTV's satellite television service throughout the U.S., accessible in 19.4 million homes.
New York based creative studio Trollbäck + Company was engaged by DirecTV to create a new logotype and on-air branding elements, including diverse TV idents that reflect the Audience Network's programming for live events, comedy and original series.

Led by executive creative director Jakob Trollbäck, the collaborative group directs television commercials, designs film titles, brands networks and creates experience-based content for global brands.
