Mix of 1999 and 2019 style Look North intro mock

If it's correct, I'm good! (February 2020)

This isn't a workplace and you're not a boss appraising his employee's productivity.

This is (meant to be!) a nice place where like-minded people can come together, share ideas, and give constructive criticism on their hobby.

It's meant to be fun, not an opportunity to harshly point out where people are lacking and suggest they need to 'buckle up' if their designs don't meet with your approval.
Guess who's big in the back time!

Since when have I said I was a boss man here.

"We are going soft, in a work place if you do gub work you will rightly get told to buckle up or else" [sic] ...

The inference being 'so why shouldn't I be able to tell people so here?'

I'm fed up of this back and forth; it's getting us nowhere.

I just don't understand some people's need to smugly tell others their work is awful when they're offering nothing useful back and seem to be doing it solely in order to make themselves feel superior to the poster.

But I did, it needs to look more like Yorkshire that would be an improvement because Yorkshire as far as I am aware does not look like the original posters mock.

Here's some constructive criticism. To me( and this is just my opinion) it looks slightly like the ident that Look North Newcastle used in the late 1980's (52 seconds in)

Yes, I can see a resemblance. It shows that using the region's shape can be a usable design point for a news programme. Just need to work on the execution here and see what works well.

Here's what I did in paint.net in less than 5 minutes. Still looks like a car crash though.


This is pretty good for Paint you can see this working very well in animation.

Perhaps if, in the above example, the word Spotlight was resized to be slightly smaller so it would fit entirely within the region, it would look even better, though I understand that with different shaped regions, this wouldn't always be possible.

I'm really not sure how it's possible for anyone to offer constructive criticism on that? The user has seemingly ignored the Guide to Mocking and has spent little time looking at other designs posted here. No one is asking for 5* designs from the off but there's got to be some quality control here.

I have some suspicions that this may be an existing member, which is frustrating. There was a case in the past of another member who signed up and posted a poor mock, presumably as some sort of sad trolling exercise to provoke comments. All a bit pathetic and they're lucky they remained on the site.

Not sure this can go much further so will be closed.
