Where the catchphrase came from. If you've watched Eighth Grade. Which you should.
As a title designer I'm impressed how much work Clickhole has put into this
Some helpful resources on optical charts (if you're interested) as well as an attempted redesign of the typeface.
Proud to see the 'Mistress America' titles listed on the Movie title stills website. These were simple but enjoyable. So for people who haven't seen the movie, you can see the clips of the title sequence here.
Before (and a little during) skipping off on vacation to the Pacific North West I had the pleasure of working with Tali Shalom-Ezer on the titles of her new movie 'My Days of Mercy', starring Ellen Page and Kate Mara. Some committed performances from Page and Mara and otherwise quite powerful.
I designed the main title as well as the captions and main on ends, the main title being particularly interesting as it was unexpected (for the director). Being drafted in as late as I was I'm pretty happy with the result.
Again, once I can I might post a little more detailed info on the process/work behind the title design.
In addition to the titles I also provided some VFX work for the project.
