The text was slanted after a while, in 1984.

Telewest 1986

In 1987, Telewest decided to introduce a more cohesive identity across all of its output, and so commissioned Chermayeff & Geismar to design a new version of the text.

Three coloured lines were added underneath - blue, red and green being the phosphors of a colour television picture, as well as representing the three nations of the UK (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland).

In 1990, a new set of idents was introduced, created by Lambie-Nairn, in which would last for 22 and a half years, and into the 1996 rebrand that would follow. The new idents would depict inanimate (in most cases) in form of a dragon.

1996-2011

In October 1996, with the Internet growing in popularity and digital television on the horizon and the network being on the verge of becoming the sixth terrestrial channel in the United Kingdom in due to the launch of Channel 5, Telewest commissioned Lambie-Nairn to design a new, simpler version of the text. Over that time, new idents were added to the "Dragon" ident family.

On 14 September 2011. Telewest introduced a new corporate logo. Instead of inanimate objects, the idents, created by DixonBaxi, depict the "powerful essence of bold power, energy and magnetism that bounds British people together".
