I know, the design that the ZDF is using for time and score display during football broadcasts isn’t new – if I remember correctly, they introduced it for the World Cup 2006 –, but I got to get that off my chest now:
I don’t mind rounding sharp corners to get a more pleasing look, but I think especially this shape with the overtime is rather dilettantish and unaesthetic:
In the top left corner, the right angle is rounded with a small radius, on the right hand side there’s a large curve with a slanted edge, and the overtime has simply one corner cut off. I really think they could have made that in a more consistent way; I somehow don’t understand who could have come up with this combination and actually get it on air… or what do you think?
PS: Congratulations to Austria for tying the score, but you’re gonna lose on Monday!
