    The titles and promotional materials for the 1995 cult-classic movie Clueless use Ad Lib (1961) and FF Fontesque (1994).

    The movie logo is based on Ad Lib, with partly stretched letterforms arranged on a bouncing baseline, enclosed in an ellipse. FF Fontesque is featured for the secondary text on the movie poster as well as for the trailer.

    The DVD cover for the 2005 re-issue titled the “Whatever!” Edition also uses Ad Lib for the lead actress’s name, and the sub-title. This cover adds rhinestones to the title to make it sparkly and the whole thing is on a ridiculous pink background. Classic!
