Scripps Graphics 2019

Recommended Posts

The rollout is such a mess with miscommunication. The person in charge is so desperate to have a station on before the end of the year that they had to scrap plans and launch first with Tallahassee because they use such a low number of graphics.  This is so unlike the Scripps of just a couple years ago. Sad.

 

Sounds more like someone is just antsy to get the look rolled out.

What? There's more depth here than just about anything Tegna has. At least it utilizes shadows.

And the new music package. Sounds like they only used one cut for the whole show. It was pretty laid-back. But definitely had that Stephen Arnold sound. Almost weather channel esque.

Word is they are launching tomorrow (Tues) on the first station.  

It is a very flat look with simple blue. It is VERY much like TEGNA. Words over a simple color or photo. They are even making the stations use an all-white version of their logo like TEGNA.  Inside Scripps, they are calling it TEGNA lite.  A few elements look nice but very limited and unprofessional as a whole package.

Looking at the package seen on WTXL that was to be expected for a market the size of Tallahassee. Hopefully, Scripps will take the package seen on WTXL and improve upon it from there

Agree, going to this from what WLEX uses, will be a downgrade I think.

Some of the elements vaguely remind me of the graphics WLS has for some reason... it’s a very nice look. The larger stations will implement it better than this undoubtedly. This is a small market station and the implementation is done accordingly.

My only gripe is the "ABC 27 News" textbox. Why is it in the shape of a cell phone text box? Was that really necessary?

Looking at those pictures, I'm very disappointed.   It's way too blue.  And it's way too flat, but at least not as dastardly absent of design like Tegna.   We'll see if Scripps improves this before rolling out to other stations.     Like the question I previously raised, I suspect this is a beta test before the other stations get it.

 

I can't speak to the music pkg since I'm only seeing pictures.  

 

And wait, is that a new set?

Scripps stations are going to WISH they had that horrible TEGNA package. What’s coming is TEGNA lite. Imagine your college production class making their own graphics package. I really feel bad for them.

This was posted earlier in the thread, and was hidden by myself, as there was no confirmation, at that point.

 

Here's the direct link to that post.

Everyone here is complaining about how awful this looks, but I bet if this had debuted in Europe it'd be hailed as revolutionary.

My college's intro had more elements to it than what Scripps has come up with.

 

The L3s look like something done in PowerPoint.  Not good.

If this is coming to WEWS, they're going to easily have THE WORST graphics package in Cleveland. This is just serviceable, at best. I mean the CNN ripoff package has aged horribly but DAMN!!!!!

Yeah, upon seeing more of these pictures, it's not a beta test--it must be what they are going with.  Yikes.

 

I don't see how this works for a minute in markets like in California or Florida.   This gfx just looks tired and bland.  I expect this of a podcast, not a major station group like Scripps.

A lot of that has elements some of these stations would have used individually without group graphics... like the station logo ghosted in the background on the full screen shots. These are a huge upgrade. I think some of you guys are having trouble with how simple they are but mobile app style graphics are where the world is headed... the old package had no individuality at all. Somebody at Scripps realized that it can’t be completely one blanket design with no individual elements.

You can have 2D graphics, but these are too simplified.  Nexstar is a good example of using a mixture of 2D and 3D and they make it work really well.   Even Morris (especially WTVQ) does a good job with "flater" graphics but still include 3D elements.   Hearst, arguably, does the finest job with its mixture of 2D and 3D.

 

Using 2D graphics can be a slippery slope.  It is either executed well or it looks awful.

 

As I said before, these Scripps gfx look really tired.  Just my opinion...

I'll have to see these these in person when these debut on WEWS, but from what I can gather, it looks like a mock that I did, no more, no less.

I think my biggest problem with these graphics is that the lower thirds are using the old Facebook logo that was replaced months ago.

 

Dear Scripps Graphics Hub: The Facebook app logo is now circular.

 

Everyone wanted Scripps to get new graphics. Well, here you go. This is the style that's popular right now.

 

I wouldn't expect many changes to these as it rolls out across the rest of their stations.

I'll take blue and flat any day. That is a fantastic package. Drop the text crawl-like thing over the L3s, and it's perfect. I don't care if it looks Tegna-like or whatever, I'm just happy the last package will finally bite the dust.

I'll miss the old package, especially with what is replacing it.  I hoped they would build on what worked in the old package, but they have chosen to go a completely different route.

Too much blue I say, looks like if TEGNA and NBC O&O graphics screwed around and made a baby, this is what the baby would look like. A little bland and boring, but I guess this is what standardization looks like. Maybe the transitions, sound effects and music will make up for it....or maybe not.

You can only have a package that looks like the old one for so long... 7 years later those design elements just aren’t fully workable anymore. You could always have the burned orange V1 Graphics if you really want... this new package certainly moves things forward rather than back to the dark days of late 2009.

We don't EVER talk about that travesty.
