Design Reflections

Upon watching the video from Vox, I was fascinated to hear that not only did the title designers of Stranger Things utilize a font from the 1980s but they also created the title sequence just how they did in the 80s’. It has become quite a trend to bring back older techniques and styles. Not only in technology but in fashion as well. It is one of my favorite trends to be quite honest. I absolutely enjoy seeing things be utilized from different generations.

The video by VanityFair has completely changed how I will now view movie posters. I never before picked up on the common theme with the colors and font sizes of various movies. It was interesting to see how small hints of red means comedy and dark, eerie blue is for thriller.

I think I have grown a new interest in finding out the history and techniques of movie posters and titles.
