A new logo was launched on April 15, 2008. It was designed by Viewpoint Creative, who were also behing the new graphics for the channel. The channel also got a new tagline, "The World is Just Awesome", with a marketing campaign by 72nd and Sunny. The globe shrunk and it was modified, the font face was changed, and the underline was removed.

In mid-2013, Discovery began de-emphasizing the 2009 logo in favor of using the D and globe symbol by itself on-air, with "Discovery" written underneath in print and social media. The network adopted the new tagline "Grab Life By The Globe".

As part of a graphical refresh in July 2016, the D symbol and "Discovery" text is now encased inside a circle.
