I did not make the work, however, I think they are brilliant (okay they are unseen. Probably first efforts)
TBH, I don't think the majority of them made it to air.
We've already seen these and we already know they were designed long before you were born.
Oh. The graphics are really brilliant for the time period that they were made (Some even years ahead of their time - I'm talking more realistic for 2010 than 1998/99). But, they are brilliant for my liking.
i don't really agree the graphics were good for their time either, if you look at what pixar was doing at the time.
but even if for the sake of simplicity we agree the graphics were ahead of their time, conceptually they are bland.
they are basically a static logo stuck on an animated background... it's no different from anything which came before it. i don't doubt the designer was just working to some brief, but they are hardly cutting edge from a design point of view.
most of those screens could have any logo pasted on top and they would still work, there isn't really anything clever or quirky about them, nothing original.
