This research on the look of video graphics on social media platforms of today (Instagram, Facebook, Youtube) take a closer look into the graphics of News-related content. Prominent and distinguished news companies use their most ubiquitous graphics with sheer simplicity. Things like type and motion itself are treated so subtly and economically that they reminded me of traffic signs. For their plane unadorned and utilitarian look. The content clearly demands a plain esthetic. In the attempt to accomplish this simplicity some companies are more graceful than others.
