The History of Title Design

A Brief History of Title Design from Ian Albinson on Vimeo.

Ian Albinson’s A Brief History of Title Design was created for the SXSW “Excellence in Title Design” competition screening. In it the title designs of television shows and movies are woven into a study of font and style. For font and movie nerds alike, it’s a fun film to watch. So many are instantly recognizable. My fave: DR. NO.
