1987
This sequence was designed by HTV senior graphic designer David James. "I chose to avoid well-used pictorial gritty, newsy images and decided upon an abstract, restrained, harmonious sequence of shapes in a choreographed space: I always design sequences as continuous actions if at all possible, such that each action sets the stage for that which is to follow. In this way the action, as well as the imagery, has a dynamic shape. You will notice that the feeling of style acknowledges classicism, and this is enchanced by the used of only two colours."
