2 Comments on “The Politician (Netflix)”
The diverse range of campaign artwork for The Politician comes with an equally diverse approach to typography. Headlines can be placed flush left or right, center aligned or with alternating font size. An alternate campaign image depicting the main characters on a throne, even brings a whole new typeface to the palette: the headline uses Minion. Maybe the designers figured that Playfair would look to fragile in this small size? In that case they could have stuck to the typographic palette by opting for Roslindale’s sturdier Text styles.
Thanks so much for posting this! Very cool to see this array of examples, especially that handpainted one you found in Stockholm!
I figured I would contribute a few I’ve collected, including photos from the premiere with a big 3D Roslindale backdrop (and plenty of pantsuits, apparently).
