This makes five years in a row that Devlin Design Group has earned the top honor. This year’s award was for its work at the Hearst-owned NBC affiliate in Orlando, Fla., WESH.
Even though the award-winning design is a high-tech storytelling environment, the team at WESH wanted the overall feel to be warm and inviting.
Tapping into local Central Florida flair was important. The inspiration for the weathered wood floor can be seen along the boardwalks of the coastal area.
The tones in the blue, orange and golden graphics surrounding the set can be witnessed in the sea and sky surrounding central Florida. The curving main and weather desks are a contrast to the angular set elements.
The five-person weather team needed a layout to accommodate the group of meteorologists with immediate access to technology, and different venues to visually explain impending threats.
Versatility is the key word when describing the multiple stages.
Two 80-inch monitors for breaking news complete the storytelling environment.
