What if the current prime time pointers/promos were extended to all of CNNI's live shows? Well, it's a long weekend here in the UK, and with nothing better to do on a Sunday evening I decided to load up Fireworks, dust off my creative skills and have a go at recreating the design style of the prime time pointers. Obviously for the real thing they would use professionally taken profile shots.

Pointless, but at least it wasted an hour or so! With some more time and effort I could probably produce some animated versions.

Comments and requests welcome!

Great work, ukjds! I think the whole network would look more as one if these were used across all dayparts. Considering everyone pretty much has their own show / time, this is something CNNI should be looking at.

Again, great work - and not pointless at all. It actually took me a little while to figure out that you used caps instead of actual photographs!

Thanks for the comments, and thanks to everyone who supplied the caps.

Also, an idea for a breakfiller, 15 seconds or so of the anchor talking about their passion for current affairs/working for CNN etc.

That's enough from me I think!

I love the idea of the profile filler thing. Can you send these to CNN to give them ideas?!

Thanks for the comments, it would be great if they did introduce an anchor profile filler, but where would all the promos for CTW and BackStory go then? :unsure:

Another "What If". This time, what if CNN had merely updated the 2006-9 era graphics, rather than introduce a completely new look.

A few months on and I have updated my original pointer design to make them look a bit more stylish.

What if CNN International kept the 2006 look, made it widescreen, yet keep the new programmes and made a refresh of the original 2006 music? I made a mock starting sequence of the World Report news bulletin with the 2006 look made by Kemistry, with a remix of the 2006 music.

I luv these promo banners, but is it really necessary to enlarge Christiane's pic? Do they really think we would not notice her? :roll:
