I’ll reserve final judgment of the colours til I see it in person. From the photos it all looks a bit garish.

It is quite garish when I took a photo of it about half an hour ago. It’s very bright like 3941 is especially when the sun is out.

I don't know who designed that but it comes across very amateur with some noticeable bad design such as:
  • The random gap between the window and the into x
  • The font on the into Newcastle, Metro Centre and Hexham is way too big that it overshadows the branding.
  • The font from Crawcrook etc on the other hand is way too small and looks weird.
  • The mobile phone is chopped in half with no bottom border and looks weird ie the green bar across.
  • There's a random from the app store buttons for websites randomly placed.
  • The orange is random and doesn't fit the livery for gold to be used for all the talking bus icons (why not Orange?) and doesn't really do anything bar trying to force the Hexham colour onto it (or the Arriva Max turquoise otherwise)
  • The Tyne Valley Ten is jammed in a small gap, why not use the space underneath and also looks weird.
  • The from GoNorthEast is too low.
  • The angles are either too shallow or start way to far back and it again looks weird.
Not a fan at all and idm the colours even known it's a bit bright.

A different designer than used previously (for the logo at least) but I'll endorse your words instead of voice my opinion...  Shy
Is it just me or has the new TVT livery (and also cityrider now i've took another look at it) been designed to have adboards fitted but doesnt have them? they have a clear space where an adboard would go unlike other decker repaints, and also having the phone on the side of 6071 cut in half to fit under an adboard and not poke out, such as the Crusader. Also, where's the mention of the 10A and 10B on the new livery, It only seems to have via points for the 10 beyond ryton and crawcrook. Is there plans to split the routes or something? Also it doesn't seem like these are going to be fitted with USBs, as the wording has been changed on the front and side to say "power" instead of the usual "USB", indicating that they're just going to rely on the existing plug sockets.
