In Focus

In Focus aims to celebrate early experiments within technology and how it’s progressed over the last 100 years, to commemorate the centenary of the BBC. The exhibition encompasses a sense of nationalism, highlighting how technology has allowed the nation to stay connected and witness iconic moments in history together.

After studying early experiments into colour television that were carried out between 1947-1967, I based the identity for In Focus on the PAL colour system. PAL was used for the first televised colour broadcast, utilising interlacing signals which allowed automatic colour correction. The new range of coloured hues that PAL allowed were celebrated after years of experimenting with coloured television.
