BBC website and Prosilver

Post by DBM »

The BBC news website has had a makeover in the past couple of days: http://news.bbc.co.uk/

Is it just me or does anyone else think that there are some design cues in there that are similar to Prosilver? I'm thinking particularly of the navbar on the left and the overall 'feel' of the text. The body font isn't actually the same as the one used in Prosilver but the general look seems to be pretty similar to me.

I'm not casting any aspersions at all, I just think there are a few similarities and it goes to show how far ahead of the game subBlue was with proSilver, as the BBC website is generally considered to be one of the best-looking news sites out there. Am also wondering if perhaps subBlue had a hand in this BBC redesign?

Same thinking here. I can't see much similar things. Not even the colors are similar to those used in ProSilver.
