I actually quite like the new look. The square graphics look great. The theme is nice and 'pacy'. The logo isn't brilliant though. I like the new ticker along the bottom, although it seems a bit all over the place. One minute it's a headline, then it's contact us, then it's the weather. The textured background is pretty tacky as well, it's been made to look like the white textured panels in the studio.
The pulsing rings are gone then. Everything squared off.
Looks good, essentially it's just distancing itself from the previous ITV on-air look and more towards ITV News. Glad they've tidied the different elements, so they at least look in unison and made the main strap wider for longer stories.
I like the change in theme, it has great pace, I do feel that the bumper and sting used into the local news could use a better mix of the edit though.
As others have said the graphics look neat and squared off. Having the clock and ticker (or is it now flipper) on the same row looks incredibly neat and how the original graphics were designed with the top of the logo the same height as the full caption with tag.
It looks like the in studio display bar now shows the date and contact details as seen before and after the titles in the video posted.
I quite like the tie in with the graphic background looking like the studio panels with subtle hints of colour.
From theme to graphics things have been fixed in a lovely way.
