45+ Spectacular Uses of Typography and Graphics in Movie & TV Title Sequences
Enter The Void (2009)
Gaspar Noe's film uses intricate eye catching typography in its opening sequence.
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005)
This title sequence from Shane Black cleverly mixes the style of Saul Bass with more modern styles of minialism (the latter of which is evident at the beginning of the credits).
The Terminator (1984)
The opening title tells you the story so far much like the first cover of a book. We then get interlocking typography and text pops up like a computer program echoing the content of the film.
The typeface here flies through the screen much like Superman.
Black Sunday (1960)
The typography used here sets an eerie tone for the movie.
The typography used here typifies director Alfred Hitchcock's style; sharp, dark and experimental. It is both simple and in your face.
Super Fly (1972)
The typography here is typical of 70's blaxploitation. The red titles move as the car heads to its destination.
The typography used in Hitchcock's 'Vertigo' is striking. The outline is simple but the lines are crisp.
Knight Rider (1983)
The typography here is classical medieval in keeping with the idea of the 'knight', although a modern take on the knight theme. The large writing comes up in time with the appearance of the characters.
Star Wars (1977)
This famous opening is simple but effective; the bold yellow rounded font jumps out of the screen.
