If they really want to ditch Gill Sans and Helvetica perhaps they should start using Rail Alphabet and Johnston. They're close enough substitutes, right? 😉

To be honest, I think they should start using comic sans.

How about, for one day only, BBC News using Comic Sans on their graphics on April Fools' Day next year?

I would love to see a mock for that, but I just know it would actually be used on other websites believing it's real.

Unfortunately there used to be a dedicated News front page team who were not able to do the Reith transition before being disbanded


That's a massive shame. How come they've been disbanded?


This Medium post from BBC D+E might be something to note -> https://medium.com/bbc-design-engineering/new-world-service-front-pages-lessons-from-our-first-steps-d54d02b2079d

It's about new WS front pages (and Simorgh).

Edit: Here's also a very interesting GitHub issue about whether or not to serve Reith to some countries -> https://github.com/bbc/simorgh/issues/2848
