I take it you hate the itv logo and would insist it should by ITV and your BBC logo would have 6 blocks to include the grammatically necessary full stops?
oh goodness not at all im glad we have at last finally come to the realisation that punctuation and capital letters are ugly and unnecessary in much the same way that its not important to cite sources correctly as long as they look right in graphic design terms and are in the right font thats the most important thing its tv after all which is a visual medium not like boring old media where clarity and accuracy matter
Punctuation, which appears not to be important to you, is very helpful in getting across your thoughts. I had to read what you’d written a couple of times and I’m still not sure what your point is I’m afraid. Television is a visual medium of course, but when text appears it does need to be legible, spelt correctly and, where appropriate, include the right punctuation so that people can understand it.
There’s a big difference between logos and brand names and blocks of text. Plenty of brands include lower case, mixed case, all uppers etc. I do use lower case quite often in my designs - it can look extremely stylish - but if I’m putting up a block of text, for example a statement from a person, I’ll use correct formatting. I have to say though, I rather agree that India should have a capital letter in that example. Apart from it being a proper noun and a country name, I've never seen it before with a lower case ‘i’ and so, to me at least, it simply looks odd.
As long as I’m involved with making visual media I’ll endeavour to correctly spell and punctuate, and be as accurate as I can if that’s ok with you.
