New design/look on TV channel
on Apr 27, 2009 at 12:33:50 pm

Hello.

We are thinking about changing the design/look on our TV channel.

Does anyone know anywhere on the net where we can find designs of other tv-stations, to get inspiration?

Thanks in advance. Have a nice day.

-Kenneth

Hit the websites of all the tv networks out there.

Turn on your cable or satellite TV and start watching the promos.

There are a half dozen or so design firms that specialize in graphic and motion design creating "looks" for television stations, cable outfits, and networks (the last one I worked with was Hothaus in Dallas).... they all have websites and should be easy enough to find by Googling.

However... they are all fairly aggressively protective of their designs, so I wouldn't be "inspired" too closely by any of them.

Awesome link, Stephen. A quick browse called out to me just how LOUD and obnoxious a lot of contemproary American set designs are, contrasted with a generally more clean, spare, spartan or minimalist style in the British sets, particularly for straight news.

I get a headache looking at some of the FOX sets with all that red, I think it's a fire station, then I look at the British ones and it all feels like the Space Wheel from the movie 2001, very calm, lot of soft backlit glass and plexi, simple geometries, a Meisian lack of distracting non-necessary detail. Calm, serious, contemplative, is what I get from those.

On the American side, the impression I get is, hurry step right up and win a kewpie doll if you hit mikl bottles with the ring-toss:-)

No, Mark, the kewpie dolls are now reading the news on American TV.

Sometimes I chuckle that some of them look as if they are much more concerned as to how their make-up is applied, than they are as to the tragedy of the news they are reading. It's dissettling when they are smiling at the camera while reading the news about a tragedy somewhere in the world.

thanks a lot for all suggestions. I've been through all of Hothaus' videos, and I'll look through the others as well.

The thought struck me while looking through the packaging for all these different news-programs: Does all the news-programs have the same packaging in America..? I could not tell one station from another, except one was number 5, and another was number 13, or something like that...

We don't have a lot of different tv-stations here in Norway, but at least I can see who is who quite easy...

But a lot of cool stuff, though...

thanks again,

have a nice day,

-Kenneth

I thought about this site as I was going to bed last night. Zaxwerks is a 3D program and they have a lot of station ID samples. http://zaxwerks.com/movies/index.shtml

Ah... see, your mistake was confusing the FOX sets with sets from actual news shows.
