So, I posted a ramble the other day about the problem of multi-channel promotion on the BBC currently, sparked by the third-annual reappearance of this:
I think this could be done a tad better by deploying a generic but adaptable design to be tacked onto to the end of such trails instead, leaving the disparities of the individual channel brands to one side.
An adapted version of the "BBC Now" menu design for such situations would be a neat solution...
Something like the following, perhaps?
The dreaded shoehorned boxes are gone, replaced by rectangles similar to those seen on the bbc.co.uk/programmes pages and the BBC logo moved to the bottom left corner to compensate. The squished boxes spoil the BBC Sport menus for me and are barely decipherable at a quick pace anyway; this solution allows for enhanced legibility of the channel name, still clearly connected to the Beeb and
ample room for a nation tag.
I've posted a few examples, not really sure which I prefer although I'm leaning towards the less boring relevant-picture-under-box version.
