    The font used for the Priv announcements on the website is amateurish, but the new banner for the Passport is downright awful!

    Where are BlackBerry's graphic designers!?

    Probably lost their job and some intern did it instead.

    I agree. Porsche design looks like a joke people took seriously.

    I presume you are referring to the banner being clipped on mobile devices. TBH, the whole site seems to be slower than ever, at least for me. Plus I got a pop up saying that the website wanted to store 1MB of crap on my device.

    It's a good thing that they have the animated banner promoting the Priv with the bb10 devices listed below. Should have been there from the day of the announcement.
    But they seem to be clutching at straws to market it: "privacy by priv", "smartslide", "touch and type", "BlackBerry for all" (who can afford it). WTH?

    Maybe they're cutting costs to pass on the savings to us, the consumer, in the form of a $300 price tag for the Priv.

    Or... not.

    Porsche Design devices are designed by PD - they provide the fonts, graphic design, etc. Can't blame those on BlackBerry

    Definitely sub standard art direction and type setting. If this was done by an agency they should be fired.

    Thinking about it some more, where are the pictures of the F1 team with their Privs? Don't sell boring product features - sell a dream lifestyle that's currently in season.

    I love critical approach. At the same time, I would expect any criticism come with an alternative solution. Otherwise it's pretty much just trolling.

    Why? It's not our job, and we're just expressing our reactions to material which is meant to spark some reaction. Obviously people have become accustomed to some level of design quality or consistency, which speaks highly of the industry and perhaps even BlackBerry's past design teams.

    Even the Buy Today button doesn't seem right on the mobile Passport page. Maybe a few extra margin-right pixels?

    Shocking graphic design; what has happened at BlackBerry?!-img_20150927_104746.png

    Also, why is the floating 'on scroll, scrollTop>0' banner thicker than the scrollTop=0 banner? I thought the whole point was to maximize the content space.

    Finally, there's lots of empty scroll space (at least on the mobile version). Feels like you're kinda lost in the abyss.

    The one thing I really don't understand is when you click on the Priv banner it lists the quotes on the Priv and then states that they found this invasion of their privacy "shocking." Why is a company that's releasing a phone touting privacy discussing the fact that their own privacy was breached? It doesn't instill a whole lot of confidence in privacy if BB can't keep their own information confidential.

    Yup.. exactly what I've been saying. It seems like whoever though of this didn't think past the first line of logic (invasion of privacy, OMG it's like priv!)

    Simply amazed with the level of "armchair quarterbacking" in these forums. Everybody thinks they know better than those doing their jobs. Really talk is cheap. IMHO, there isn't anything amateurish about the new BB designs.

    I challenge anyone who thinks they can do better to post their rendition on this forum for critic.

    Once I get back home I'll knock something up. I'm a graphic designer and I've appreciated the work done by their design teams in the past, I've loved it. Click right now on the Passport's page and it's amazing, so I don't know where this awful new direction has come from
