Disappointing


Graphic designers have a noble role to play in news communication through diagramming and graphic explanation. But they seem to have turned instead to the naff branding of news stories. Channel 4's graphic treatment of the Mumbai terrorism was breathtakingly crass, with its fake hindi curry house logo.

  1. Equally crass was the BBC's Myra Hindleyization of Karen Matthews. Her photograph was transformed onscreen from natural colour, through distorted colours, into a ghoulish image. This was graphic design at the service of the poplulist news-agenda.
