Bit unfair to be judging the quality of the work, based on a badly compressed Twitter video.
I have to agree with the eye on this one, it's nice but it's not stunning or amazing, it's an orange sphere with an orange fractal background, hardly groundbreaking. And there are plenty of old mocks of similar par to this actual design that would be shredded apart on here!
I think it’s nice, but where does it fit with the rest of the BBC News graphics? Where’s the cat’s cradle and place names?
The horizon was a bit of a stretch from the existing globe, but was at least tied to it a bit with the cat’s cradle, but this has lost all connection. It’s like Breakfast is once again totally separated from the main BBC News brand.
That said, it’s 100 times better than having the main BBC titles merged with a disco ball! It’s the morning, not a time for dancing! Things should be quieter and more subtle in the morning, not more jazzy. I can hardly open my eyes until 10am usually!
