    The main titles during both the opening and closing of the movie Ex Machina are an unorthodox use of the layered typeface Idler. Idler is a typeface that consists of layered styles. Instead of using the typeface in the conventional way (stacking layers of the different styles to achieve a 3D, multi-colored beveled look), designer Matt Curtis instead just used the weight Idler Inner. This “Inner” style is actually just the isolated inline of the beveled letters, but when used on its own it has a sort of mechanical, rigid futuristic look.

      This exact variation of Idler was also used on the main titles for “The Martian”, designed by… guess who? Matt Curtis. Talk about falling in love with a pretty face…
