I didn't want to hijack lmach8's thread as it seems he is planning a large portfolio of all different sports and networks, so I thought I'd start another one to showcase my designs and maybe others can put theirs in here too.

I designed these way back in 2006/07 when Seven were first regaining the rights. I knew they'd come in handy one day, and the other thread inspired me to dust them off and show them. I have got more than just the scorebug, I thought of as many graphics that are shown as possible.


Firstly, the main scoreboard centre bottom of screen after a goal:


Scorebug in top left, and expanding after a behind:


Player info (shown when lining up for goal, etc)


Commentators:


Random graphics:


Interchange. Not really used anymore due to the large number of interchanges, but could now be used for substitutions:


Thoughts??

Re: lmach8's Scoreboard Graphic Designs

Heres one that took me about 5 minutes, it meant to be at the bottom of the screen like the NBA.
Fox Footy used to have something like that IIRC. I think your scores are wrong, 23 goals equals 138 plus 12 points would be 150 and Chokewood wouldn't be able to get a goal in the first quarter.

Something I made for Channel 7. I saw their l graphics were charcoal for the tennis.

Re: lmach8's Scoreboard Graphic Designs

I've always preferred the wider scoreboard. Last year's Fox Sports design was perfect. It was well designed, clean, and easy to understand. The criteria for a good scoreboard design is simple, and Fox nailed it.

Perhaps you could integrate the Premiership Season logo into a scoreboard?

An all silver box. With a blue outline. Team names would be in the same blue as the outside. Then a red box for scores, with white numbering inside. Then to the left would be the same chrome silver background. With blue writing the quarter number, and then time. Everything would conform to a 90 degree angle. Having the AFL logo to the left would perhaps add some 'interest' and colour to the design.

HAW [ 66 ] FREM [77] | 4th 22:09

Of course, words and html can't showcase this in the best light. But with added shading and chrome effects, I think it'd look great.

If you wanted personalisation, you could perhaps make the font of the team have a colour representing the club. So, using the above example, HAW would be in brown. FREM in purple.

Yeah, I was actually thinking of making an alternate version of the one above, in a 'Bottom of the Screen' scoreboard format. I'm just a work though, so I doubt the boss would be impressed. Haha. I'll have a crack when I get home.

Re: lmach8's Scoreboard Graphic Designs

I think the best score board of all time is Channel 10's, IMO.

Re: lmach8's Scoreboard Graphic Designs

What a way to spend a Wednesday
That's pretty much it.

Except a little more chrome looking. Also, just the AFL logo at the end, not the full Premiership Season one.

I was basically ripping off the Premier League design.

Re: TV Broadcast Graphics

They wouldn't look out of place in a retro compilation. So that's a positive. For 2006/2007, these look great, but certainly dated.

Re: lmach8's Scoreboard Graphic Designs

Logos are unnecessary for a scorebug, IMO. Three letter abbreviations of team names, scores, clock. It's not there to be a work of art, it's there to inform me-the-viewer-who-just-walked-in. The pretty stuff should be saved for a full scoreboard.

Re: lmach8's Scoreboard Graphic Designs

I've always thought Fox Sports scoreboard (presentation as a whole) looked totally unprofessional, especially since they've added those terrible uniform thumbnails...
Hope a big change in their broadcast is on the way for Fox Footy.

Re: TV Broadcast Graphics

I'm sure they'd all look less dated if the font wasn't Eras. I like it. Great job.

Re: TV Broadcast Graphics

As ugly as it is, it would probably look less dated with the new Crows logo as well.
