Programming and Graphics / Re: TWC New Graphics

the survey i mentioned showed you a few different types of maps, some more detailed than others, some real clean and basic, some in between.. which did you like best,

then each map with a different location  nameplate if you will, in different font and formats, asking which combination you liked..

i dont remember what some of the other questions were though
Was Interstate an option?  :P (Although I do miss seeing that font on-air...)

Seriously though, I feel like I'm one of the few people here who doesn't mind them switching from Akko to Roboto for their main graphics. It's much cleaner to read.

Personally, it would've been great if they could've updated the LOT8s graphics as well. Changing the font only doesn't do much.

The lower third has an empty space to the right of it. That area is for severe weather information and other random info they throw there. Should be interesting to see in action.

Guess it's technically still Weather All The Time as the LDL stays on during the commerical breaks, and it's not stupidly labeled LOT8.

Glad they ditched the L Bar, it became pretty worthless in recent years.

New graphics look pretty good, in my opinion. Fullscreen LOT8 bit of a letdown - exactly the same except for the new font used.
Glad the L Bar fearuing longform ads are gone!! Rolleyes!

However wonder what they'll do if the US gets a landfall? The L Bar was handy then. WeatherNation even uses the L Bar for landfalls. 

WeatherNation still has their L Bar and graphics.

The new LDL is being used during the long-form shows.

i actually remember a few months ago they sent out an email survey asking about the types of maps and fonts did you like.. it looks like they took that feedback for this update
Interestingly, it seems like they've been working on this package since January according to a tweet from one of the meteorologists (https://twitter.com/jamessinko/status/1163786711819853826?s=21). At the time, I thought it would just be the maps getting changed—boy was I wrong! Either those surveyed mainly picked the new stuff or TWC is using that survey as a justification for the change regardless of the result (remember the LOT8s cuts, how they didn't care about people's opinions on the matter).

To be fair, I think the new graphics are fine—and a refresh was needed—but they strangely appear really rushed and have plenty of things that need to be fixed.
