The Open graphics over the BBC Newsline titles are awful. It's clear they had this planned before Reith was announced as launching 15th July so we aren't getting the new look yet. It makes the programme not even look like it's a news programme. I hope once the new look launches they finally get rid of the constant BBC Newsline DOG
on screen all the time.
Perhaps someone from BBC NI or NI could shed some light on the constant Newsline DOG? As far as I can remember getting into TV pres it's been there in one guise or another. Do the good people of NI need to know they're watching BBC News?
Even going through the examples of previous graphics on YouTube and other sites shows a consistent theme - badly designed redraws of their original, externally produced graphics, poor typography, frankly absurd headline graphics circa 2002 (because Ulster needs an 'explosion' in every headline sequence post 'ceasefire') along with really loose spacing between the letters in the titles at the time... They make BBC Channel Islands' grahpics people look talented.
Oh it's such a perfect day, I'm glad I spent it with you...
