I hope they do not mess ITV News presentation. The newsroom backdrop looks great, it just needs some modifications to it. I do not think it is possible for a live view of the ITN newsroom as part of their backdrop? Newsroom is too small, but something like the current look but modified. Plus, a dedicated separate look for News at Ten would be great.
Even though I think it’s unlikly to happen I would not rule out ITV becoming ITV 1 again. The new CEO is very keen for ITV to be more than TV (which I agree with). As ITV is the main company name they might want to make a clear distinction between a TV channel and the company as a whole. I would not be surprised in a few years time if the ITV hub is just known as ITV. So they might want to start now to make a clear difference for latter on so the public don’t get confused.
Also not sure if you have all seen James tweet giving a clue about the new look.
The 3D/abstract bit sounds interesting. I suppose they could have the different coloured sections of the ITV logo hidden away in an abstract 3D generated background, which then come/float together to form the logo. A bit like the 2004-2015 Channel 4 idents, but with CGI backgrounds. Or like the 1996 Central idents, where parts of the cake were only shown on screen whilst ball bearings and feathers were blown through the cut out sections...
