Movie Title Stills

Posted by Tom | Posted in Title Sequences Movie Title Stills

First of all, hello and welcome back to Raw Type! We were extremely busy in late 2011 — which is great for the studio — although unfortunately it means updating blogs gets put to the bottom of the list. As it’s now 2012 we thought we’d introduce the new year with a collection of film intros. This wonderful archive of Movie Title Stills was collated by Christian Annyas and showcases hundreds of films as far back as 1920. Be warned; you may lose hours of your day scrolling through the pages, so we’ve grabbed a few of our favourites for your viewing pleasure…

Jeff Canham

Posted by Michael | Posted in General Jeff Canham

His colourful, typographic compositions showcase his skills as an artist, graphic designer, and traditional sign painter. From art directing Surfer Magazine to learning the time-honored craft of sign painting his juxtaposition of old and new methods have evolved to form the backbone of his work today. His sign painting, typography and hand lettering style are gorgeous and truly inspiring. His latest work, are these beautiful large flags that will decorate The Standard’s Hotel in NYC, they have been popping up in a few twitter feeds of late. Not only is the project in hand a visually stunning the process of creating the visuals is pretty impressive.

Quadradao

Posted by Tom | Posted in General Quadradao

Brazilian agency Quadradao (which roughly translates as ‘boxy’) have recently relaunched their site with lots of lovely new projects. The timeline-inspired navigation is like an education into their evolution. I admire their simplicity of predominantly working in type, shape and colour. “Modern architecture influences us, not as form but as a method”.

The Fall

Posted by Tom | Posted in Title Sequences The Fall

This is pretty old now, but after talking to several people who haven’t seen it, I thought it was definitely worth a post. Tarsem’s The Fall is truly a visual masterpiece and the opening titles set the standard from the first shot. If you haven’t seen the film I can’t recommend it enough, and I’m sure after you watch the following sequence you won’t need any more convincing.

Enter The Comp

Posted by Tom | Posted in General, Title Sequences Enter The Comp

We’ve managed to get our hands on a couple of Enter The Void posters, one of which is signed by the great Gaspar Noé himself. Because nobody in the studio can decide who should have them we thought we’d open it up to everyone. Just answer the following question…

We’d like to thank everyone who entered – there were some fantastically bizarre and wonderfully creative responses to our Open brief. There can be, however, one winner and we’d like to give you — the Raw Type viewers — the power. So (in our best dramatic voice) the finalists are…

Finalists – Spotlight

Posted by Tom | Posted in General Finalists – Spotlight

It’s extremely difficult to judge the finalists purely on their final posters, that’s why we’ve shed a bit more light on each execution. For experimental type, the idea and the process is often more interesting than the outcome…
