I wouldn't say it's squashed together, nor that the designs with gaps between the elements make the text hard to read in any way - I have no problems reading them myself... It may be the downsizing?

I note though, most of the designs there haven't tried a full screen width lower third; from the new recreation I actually think it could look very nice.

The thought I had when doing the designs was use as little space as needed, because with HD you don't need to fill the screen with straps and tickers lol.

Yes... I guess that's fine. I was giving the aesthetic priority over that HD efficiency, you might say; text in small boxes generally have never been quite as pleasing on my eyes as longer straps.

But I know where you're coming from, and I can't really fault the execution at all from that point; it's top notch.

Martin, i've already rated this mock highly, yet knowing that you are capable of some amazing things I cant help thinking that this is a waste of your time.

I'd love to see a scratch designed set of titles for one of the World News programmes that arent getting new titles, such as GMT or Newsday, or perhaps even a 'What If The Hub had not been axed' set of titles.

In a bit of a lull at the moment, these were only meant to be a small distraction, but blew up a little bit. Once the new look has launched, and settled, I may do a recreation or something.


Thats unfortunate. Hopefully you'll get out of that lull soon and we'll see some more amazing animations.

Really Good, Were the BBC not using or trying new graphics? Im sure I saw new graphics one morning, maybe on Sunday Politics?
