Reimagining The ITN News Channel for 2020

ITN News Channel as an online and app based service.

This is my first mock and i've decided to design new lower thirds, title cards and coming soon banners for the ITN News channel.

*

This new online channel would feature bulletins from ITV, Channel 4 & Channel 5 simulcast but with a headlines ticker and clock added. When no network bulletin is being shown it would show an ITN made documentary (new or old) or a bespoke ITN News bulletin.

First here are the 'Today on ITN' cards with my plans for scheduling:

*

(Current Affairs Hour is a slot for Programs such as 'Peston' & 'Tonight')

Coming Soon Variant with more focused content:

*

Here are some title cards for the Bespoke ITN Bulletins:

Here are the lower thirds & overlayed graphics for the bespoke bulletins:

And finally......
This is what an ITV News Bulletin would look like with the ticker, clock, and channel logo:

Hope you liked these and I look forward to hearing your feedback. Very Happy

Sidenote: I thought that the bespoke bulletins should be done with just a view of the atrium and a 'wheelie telie')

Its a good start. I like it. its simplistic but you have lined everything up nicely which a lot of people don't and you have some nice padding around the text which makes things easier to read

I like that you have kept a ticker as a flipper can be restrictive in the amount of information you can put on it

It has a lot of aspects of BBC News whilst keeping a few bits of the current Itv news colours and the titles remind me of the itv news channel with Mark Austin & Mary Nightingale during the blue and yellow block theatre of news era and there are some things from the original ITN news channel such as the positioning of the logo and clock

I'd like to see some more for how you would do sport, weather, markets etc

Too early to score it but it has promise. I'd ditch the idea of simulcast of ITN programmes for other channels as nowadays that is unlikely and to be honest it compromises your design.

Certainly the best newbie effort for quite some time though.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

It’s a bit... dull? ITN tend to be quite modern in their design these days but this is quite basic. I think if they were to revive their news channel, it’d look quite a bit different to this and to how it used to look.

Be bold. I’d add in more colour and bigger text.

These would animate in and out like a 'flipper' but would be 'tickers' themselves.

Above I have added more vibrant colours.

I've also done a nightime ITN News title card: (Which I think doesn't look as nice)

The DOG and clock would probably work better if dropped to the bottom so the logo lines up with the Aston. Agree though with all new phil that you can push it much further and be much bolder, but this is a really strong starting point.

I have updated my design based on the feedback above. I have also shown some more examples of graphics
