There's barely any constructive criticism to give - your mocks, apart from borrowing heavily from someone else's ideas, are simply amateurish recreations of what ITV News already uses on screen. Very poor.


If you're trying to say I'm copying pad's idea then why did I come up with this idea and start designing a week ago? And why do my graphics use rectangular names on the title rather than square? You're also making suggestions on pad's post that my graphics already have...
Much better to have the ITV News logo on one line;

My graphics have always had the ITV News logo on one line.
I like the idea of the programme names in the opening sequences

My graphics also have the programme name on the titles and I have had that idea for over a week.

The names of the show on my titles are much more prominent, in fact, they are the standout feature of my titles, yet you seem to be being constructive with Pad's titles and not mine.

Not a fan of the astons although it's nice to see something different - how about developing a new idea based on that strap they're using to introduce reports on News at Ten at the moment?[/quote]

Also, pad has no graphics for Good Morning Britain. My idea more than a week ago was to align all ITV news based programmes into one ITV News brand to keep things consistent. Its just ironic that pad posted his before mine.

Mine may look like an 'amateurish' remake of the current graphics but it was just over 2 years ago since ITV News last rebranded. I don't want it to be anything too major. I have mocked a full set of titles and just because it has show names on like pad's, you refuse to give me constructive feedback.

Just because pad posted his first, doesn't mean I'm copying him. My idea came from the fact that ITV has renamed shows to 'Lunchtime News, Evening News and News At Ten'. I'm just creating branding for all of them which ITV may be doing in 2016, definitely for News At Ten anyway.

Are you serious?! You've created your own mocks based on somebody else's idea and then have the audacity to say, "Well, I actually took on board the feedback you gave to someone else, so mine is better and you should like it"?

If people don't like your poor 'designs' (and it clearly isn't just me if you look at the rating), then it's not my problem.

The most recent updates are the best you've done yet. The two tone logo is quite cool. But as I experienced designing very similar concepts shortly before you posted yours, it is very hard to get the balance of text sizes right.

I admire the way you've attempted this anyway and think you've taken the concept I originated further than I did in some ways.

However - I don't think it's fair you or Aaron are criticising BBCNicky for calling BS on when you both started work on these designs. It would have been a little bit easier to take if you (or he) had simply said "I was inspired by pad's ideas and thought I'd give it a go as well".

It is far beyond the realms of coincidence that not only the exact concept but the feedback I initially received was incorporated. All this said you won't want to change your story now; that would be embarrassing. Regarding the mocks the most recent updates are the best but a few safe area issues and text alignment issues remain.

I wasn't inspired by your ideas though, so that would be an incredibly strange thing to say. Your original mock was a few logos, I was not inspired by that.

Grow up, and grow up fast child.

I posted further concepts including the ones that look next-to-identical to your "original ideas" within hours of the logos on the 20th. You'd even posted in my thread (harsh criticism, at that). Yours came 3 days later.

No one, repeat no one, buys your sh**. So stop being aggressive to respected members on this forum or thinking anyone (except possibly other pseudonym accounts) will think it's okay for you to get so arsey with everyone.

As I said before, your egoic pride will not allow you to admit you were inspired by my work. So for next time, give credit where its due and realise that doesn't affect the standing of your work.

How are you to know when they started their mocks, I'm personally fed up of people saying "you've done this in five minutes" or "create something original" or "you've copied someone else". Half my mocks are recreations yet does everyone complain? No. The Gallery should be a place where people can freely put up their mock, without feeling worried about getting responses like James and Aaron have got. That's probably why Aaron has agreed with people when they suggest the flaws in his mocks (e.g. the sofa design on his weekend mock).

Oh please mate! I've already said several times I'm flattered about being inspiring to these members. People are free to post whatever they want. No idea is truly original anyway. Bloody hell. It's the lying that is frustrating, the idea you can pull the wool over people's eyes saying "oh I did these last month but um, didn't post them because I was busy babysitting my neighbour, but I've posted them now, and my gosh, pad had a psychic episode and somehow channelled all my work into published designs before I had the chance!"

I also feel like the mods should run a few IP address checks on users here, just to be sure, if you catch my drift. Wink
