NAZ Today – Graphics Revamp

Project Meta

Applications:

Adobe Photoshop CS4
Premiere Pro CS4

The nature of student news means people move in and out rather quickly, usually within a four year time-span. As such, things change rapidly semester to semester, including the graphic design of the show. I was asked to come up with a new visual theme for the program, as there was little consistency between all of the graphics. Here is that redesign, which is implemented in Chyron, Keynote (for full page), and Final Cut. Note that the text on many of these are missing; this is because the text is inserted in the Chyron. A full show is posted at the end with the final graphics/text.
