Surf video lettering

Some laid back surfing and hand drawn lettering, a perfect combination.

I came across these two unrelated videos. Well, I guess they’re not completely unrelated because both feature some laid back surfing and hand drawn lettering, a perfect combination.

Cool title screens: The Master Cleanse

Some clever title screen lettering by Erik Marinovich perfectly captures the mood of this short film.

Friends of Type recently reported on Erik Marinovich’s process in designing the title screens for a short film entitled The Master Cleanse.

I really like the way the bright yellow and white smeared lettering creates a perfect visual paradox: clean yet grimy. As the days go by and the relationship of the main characters becomes strained, the build-up of tension is reflected in the lettering – another clever touch by Erik:

Stranger Than Fiction title sequence

Stranger Than Fiction title sequence

I remember watching this unusual (for him) Will Ferrell film back in 2006 and being spellbound by the title sequence. If you enjoy the combination of movies and nice typography, there is little doubt that you would have checked out Art of the Titlea compendium and leading web resource of film and television title design from around the world.

The opening titles for Stranger Than Fiction were designed by Kansas City based MK12.
