Widescreen graphics - bid

Widescreen graphics for everyone's favourite channel (August 2012)

I was originally going to make a recreation of bid's graphics in widescreen, but soon I realised that it adapting their current graphics wasn't going to work. So, here is my first serious mock in years:

And here's the graphics with the multi-buy and timer:

I don't think there's much I can add in terms of description. I'm looking forward to what you think, and I hope I've improved somewhat since my first mocks, way back in 2006(ish).

I just realised I forgot to add a background - they're transparent PNGs, so you can overlay them on your favourite picture of Peter Simon or Tim Willcox.

Very nice, but going backwards twice.

Awfully positioned 'Live' tag.

I don't want to look like a complete idiot, but I don't understand what you're saying. (I'm going to look like a complete prat if you're pointing out something obvious...)

I only remembered they had one quite late on. Now the images are shrunken down, it does look a bit cack. To be honest, it doesn't need to be there at all, but they seem to like it.

As in going back two iterations? Oh!

Yes, I did that purposely because the overlapping design doesn't work with the chevrons. I tried to incorporate more of the newer elements into the mock to balance it out.

I like these... I even like the awkwardly placed Live Bug, channels like this like these things to be in your face so you dont forget, not subtly tucked away in a corner.

Good job Bilky.

Nice Mock AxG, a few niggles but they have already been pointed out. Smile Also I hate the above graphics as they replaced far superior animations, where the arrow ate the quantity at the end of each falling auction. Sad

The things I were going to comment on have been mentioned, so I'll simply say that it's a good mock. Well done Bilky. Very Happy
