Alien | Typeset In The Future

by sbrothier & 1 other
My third post about typography in sci-fi has been gestating for a while now. Indeed, it's been slowly taking shape – you might say it's been forming itself inside of me – for really quite some time. I'm delighted to say that it is now ready to burst forth from my allegorical chest, and to spatter allegorical typographic blood all over your allegorical faces. Welcome to Typeset In The Future: The Alien Edition.



the Movie title stills collection

by sbrothier & 4 others
I've seen a lot of movies over the years, and to prove I've sat through at least the first ten minutes of them I started making screenshots of the titles. Then my computer crashed and I almost lost them all. To save them for future generations I created this little website.

Cozy Lummox: Pigs, Pimps and Prostitutes

by sbrothier
So... Pigs, Pimps and Prostitutes! This is a recent favorite of mine--three great films, and I was very happy with how the design came together. A different animal than my previous Imammura cover, Vengeance is Mine, but both are personal favorites, actually. Here's the first idea I had, which is pretty close to the final covers

In Paris we met with one half of the design duo that makes up Studio Deubal. Deubal is a French creative agency consisting of Stéphanie Lelong and Olivier Marquézy. We fell in love with their original character-based title sequence designs. When we visit Olivier in his studio, he's on his last legs. He's been pulling an all-nighter.

Forget the Film, Watch the Titles

by sbrothier
Today, the term animation is used broadly and encompasses a vast array of styles and technologies that are used to create the illusion of motion. Here, we focus on some really good examples of the use of animated characters in film title design. Not only do these title sequences list the main credits, they have animated characters that introduce us to the story of the film. None of these films are animated. As the collection of animated title sequences grows, more animation-related sub-themes will help to shed more light on the use of animation in main title design.

shillPages - Movie Title Screens Page

by sbrothier & 7 others
What good is it? Whatever use you put it to. Browse and admire title and logo designs, check out movies that have completely different titles in different release prints (see Battle of Britain or The Premature Burial for good examples), check out the differences in multiple releases of the same title (see Aliens or Invasion of the Body Snatchers for a good example), check to see just how "wide" is the widescreen (width/height=aspect ratio... and does it match the sleeve description?)... use the logo when designing a web page for your favourite movie...include the title screens in your video database... the possibilities are... well, not endless, but many! Please note that the aspect ratio shown is merely calculated from the image size and, although very close to the actual ratio, may not be 100% accurate.

Core77 Broadcast: Gary Hustwit in Helvetica, interviewed by Alissa Walker

by sbrothier, 2 comments (via)
Once simply the name of the most ubiquitous typeface on the planet, now the documentary Helvetica is becoming almost as ubiquitous--at least among members of the design community. The film not only tells the story of the typeface itself, from its birth in Switzerland fifty years ago to current gig as American Apparel mascot, but it also serves as an entertaining primer on modern graphic design, featuring major players from Massimo Vignelli to Experimental Jetset.

Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which will celebrate its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives. Helvetica will begin screening at film festivals worldwide starting in early 2007.
