Art of the Title: A Brief History of Title Design

This is a fun little video for those who like title design (and who doesn’t?). It’s a presentation video for the SXSW “Excellence in Title Design” competition screening which features brief moments from over 70 movies and tv show’s opening credits (or title design if you will). It is a bit interesting that some titles are not even featured in the video, but the person who created this is obviously way more creative then I am, so I’ll assume I am an idiot that doesn’t get it (much like I do with Harry Potter). A full list of movies and shows can be found just below the video.  Props to artofthetitle.com for a great job. Enjoy!

I see what you did there: Unmasked Icons

This is a series of photos on Facebook by Design Overall titled UNMASKED ICONS with illustrations by Alex Solis. I once unmasked someone and exposed them to the world….well, I actually just ripped the sunglasses off a guy who had extreme sensitivity to light. He was pretty mad at me but in my defense, I thought he was a super-villain. I mean, he was covering his face and had this inhaler so he clearly was looking to poison the city with some kind of toxic gas. He claimed it was for his asthma, but I wasn’t buying it. Props to my buddy Jon for pointing these pictures out to me. Enjoy!

Cereal Killers: Breakfast Cereals Re-Imagined With Horror Movie Characters

This is a series (or serial if you will) is by artist Kate Willaert which features classic horror movie characters re-imagined as classic General Mills cereal mascots. The characters on the box really capture the original cereal box art but the catch phrases are what makes these awesome. I only wish I could buy these, unfortunately the cereal is as fake as the horror mascots on the boxes. Except the Jason, everyone knows that totally based on a true story. Enjoy!
