Maybe it's just me but I've noticed a pattern in most of these graphic packages seen on channels like Cinemax, AMC, Disney Channel, and Starz in America. I remember Cinemax having a graphics package that had a beautiful 3D graphic package like this:
Now it's gone to this crappy and boring graphics of simple transitions. And Starz had an amazing graphics package in 2005:
and now that's downgraded along with AMC. What the hell is going with today's graphic packages that it's so boring and bland. Are graphics for a channel too expensive or what? I need help understanding
Actually, the more recent example is a lot more complicated to make than the older one. But it's all up to the art direction of the package. It's the result of their tastes, judgement and their budget.
