I personally prefer the previous one David because it's different, fits in with your design well and has a good emphasis on the labels: 'top story', 'developing story', 'entertainment', etc.

After the multiple changes, it seems the final idea is really starting to look like a proper package you'd expect to see at 6am on GMB, very good job with this.

Thanks for your comment. I appreciate it very much. There are a few more little bits to share (e.g. split screen graphics, wipes, etc) but I'm pleased you approve of my progress thus far.

I see you're a 'new member'. A very warm welcome to the forum.
Guess who's big in the back time!

Bit of an update. Been working on some additional graphics in my spare time. Here's a look at the over shoulder graphic, and the live and breaking news wipes.


Over shoulder:

Wipes:




Feedback, as ever, very much appreciated.

I quite like how the old OTS works with this set of graphics. I think with the current one it would be a bit too square and lose all use of the logo shape.

The wipes are very nice and well executed but having the logo on the right means you do (like I said above) lose the logo shape. Overall though very nice.

Hello, friends. Here's yet another Good Morning Britain mock. Hope you like it.

I have designed a new look for Good Morning Britain based on a mix between the current GMB graphics, the current CNN graphics and the Sky News HD graphics (2010-2015) to create something I hope you'll think looks appropriate.

I have provided stills and a video for you to fully see the range of graphics.


Stills:

1. This is the 'default' - just the logo, the clock, and the ticker.

*

2. This is the presenter name strap, used for the newsreader, any 'editors', e.g. Richard Arnold, Martin Lewis, etc.

*

3. This graphic shows the location the correspondent is in.

*

4. This 'breaking news' graphic would come on in the case of major breaking news happening while the show was on air to catch people's eye.

*

5. The standard one-line breaking news graphic.

*

6. The one-line breaking news graphic, but with text-squishing allowing for slightly more in-depth information to be displayed.

*

7. The standard two-line general news/feature graphic.

*

8. The two-line general news/feature graphic with text squishing to allow for more detailed information to be given.

*

9. The name graphic for guests and contributors.

*

10. The coming up graphic to tell viewers when features like sport, weather, local news, and entertainment are to take place.

*

11. The contact us box tells viewers how to get in touch with the show and has been left on the bottom right as it is currently.

*

12. A graphic in the top left can be used for crediting footage, dating the clips being shown, giving information, e.g. 'exclusive', or giving a segment-specific hashtag, e.g. #FadFreeGMB in order for viewers to get in touch regarding that part of the show.

*

13. A little #GMB above the logo for times when they have a 'big' guest and want as many people to e.g. send in questions as possible.

*


Video:

In order to see how these graphics animate, I have put together a one-minute video showcasing as many as possible so that you can get a feel for how it would work on screen. (Do try to watch it in 1080p if you can.)

Please feel free to offer feedback. I hope you have enjoyed looking through this, and thanks for taking the time to do so.


This is great!
That was good!
Fantastic everything!
Can i ask, what programme did you use to create that toth and graphics, and how did you make text in the ticker scroll from left to right?
Is that the ITV Reem font?
Thanks!

Hello, HAR10110289.

The actual video editing software I used for the TOTH sequence is Camtasia, and the typeface is ITV Reem, as used in the programme itself.

I am pleased you approve of my mock, (though it has changed rather a lot since the early CNN inspired one you quoted).

Thanks for your feedback.
