It's only taken two months, but the next bit of Sky News is done, applying the graphics to The Brexit Election...
There are a couple of changes from the initial set of photos I uploaded with the first post of this thread, removing unnecessary colour in favour of white, then colour where needed to represent the parties, and the Results So Far/Turnout/Target bar which sat above the results counter being relocated and combined with the Share/Seats flipper.
These videos also contain some new parts including the split screens, which are a slightly altered version of the current layout. The background itself is an election only background, I wouldn't use this for the main split screen background.
The declaration graphics are pretty much the same as the actual ones Sky News used, just slightly resized as to not show up in the 110% zoom on the straps.
Well done in advance to anyone who decides to watch every second, as in total is just under 79 minutes for all 9 parts.
While taking a few breaks from making the election videos so that I didn't get sick of doing it, I started expanding on a few other areas. I started Sky Three by updating and adapting the Free Weekend Pass, just seeing what it could be like with the IPP graphic. And a logo that totally isn't stolen from NBC Today's Citi Concert Series
In the last few weeks, I've also started some work on Sky Sports. While sports aren't particularly something I have a great deal of knowledge on, I still really like the package that is currently used, so I don't plan on changing much, just a few tweaks here and there, originally my Sky Sports News 'lower thirds' (as in the graphics used on the studio output rather than the L bar) were in the same style as is used now, just altering the highlight to have the curved edges used on the logos, but once I saw the updates made earlier this year that incorporated the variants of the Sky Sports Display font further into the graphics used on sporting events, I decided to update Sky Sports News to use this style.
The recreation of the new lower thirds first came from Sky's Netball graphics, which I will include later in the post. I then moved them into a position that mirrored the positioning used on SSN, the main name graphic is a little further left so that the blue section is aligned with the red story bar in the L bar below, rather than the white, so that team logos can be used.
Currently when the L bar isn't used and the studio output fills the screen, the graphics stay in the same places as they would on the pushback, I would 'plan' for the graphics to reposition into the same layout used on the original recreation, so the name graphics become central aligned instead of being right aligned to the red box below in the L bar. The spoiler demonstrates this idea.
The source of the News graphics, most graphics identical to the ones used in the above spoiler, just recoloured in the Netball purple.
To finish off... an update version of the logo board.
