Hello dear readers,

I discovered graphic design after my 7 year course as an architect (studies + internship). I clearly recall the moment when, sitting in front of the computer in the office I was doing my internship, I thought I'd love to find a software on which I could play with fonts. A few months later I was spending my days learning programs for graphic designers and trying to learn the name of all the typefaces I encountered!

I'd like to dedicate this post to typefaces, and more precisely to typefaces in the context of movie trailers. Words superimposed to moving images, it's magical! I will show you a small selection of stills from movie trailers from different periods.

I'll start with movie titles from the 30's and the 40's:

In the late 50's the designer Saul Bass brought the title design to a new level. He considered trailers as a powerful means to emphasize the movie and not only as a functional and mandatory sequence. He stands for being the first to animate the typefaces. IMoving typefaces are so common nowadays but someone had to invent it!

Some movies he worked on:

It's always very inspirational for me to look at these stills. If you like to have a deeper peek on the subject, have a look at THE MOVIE STILLS COLLECTION where most of the images above are taken from.
