Refreshing the news (December 2018)

Reith does not contain many language glyphs right now, so I imagine other fonts will be sourced. But the Beeb could commission Reith variants in Arabic, Hirigana/Katakana, Korean, Kanji etc

it’s not necessary. they can still use the already made Helvetica glyphs in these languages. they shouldn’t be putting effort in where it arguably isn’t needed.

But the entire point of Reith is for a typeface that they own outright and don't need to pay royalties to use.

Making internationalised fonts is also very expensive, and for these niche uses, using a pre-made font may make more sense

Yeah but you just know it'll cause some apoplexy on an Arabic TV enthusiasts forum.

Getting some Good Morning Britain vibes with the swipes and center-aligned strap. It does look a lot better than what the BBC have now, though. Keep it up!

These look great, Bail. Well executed in terms of technique, but also creatively as well.

It's one of those rare moments when I come into the mocks section and see a set that 'could' be used in the future, this is one of them.

It's definitely an evolution of what we've got now, and very nice. If I could make one criticism it would be that the BBC and News look slightly too disconnected to me, considering the brand is BBC News (rather than News from the BBC).

I've been working on this a little more over the weekend, I've darkened it all down a little, looking back the red of was a bit vivid, also refined some elements a bit more.
