Great to see a quality contribution to this thread offering something new, and really love the idea. Interesting to how video changes your perception - from the stills I wasn't sure about the programme logos and astons but in the video they absolutely work - my only irritation is that ITV DOG
hovering above them.
I'm a big fan of the late 90s look and love the simplicity of it. It's clearly the inspiration here but I think the transitions need to be more imaginative - they're smoothly done but horizontal/veritcal wipe effect isn't the most creative. I feel the clockhands could probably come into play more here.
What I really like though is how News at Ten has it's own distinctive look yet remains firmly on brand. Agree with you though that the ITV News theme does work better than the News at Ten theme.
Overall though a really welcome contribution to the forum. Easily the best post of the year so far.
I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.
