    Opening title sequence for the Steven Spielberg movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tom Hanks, Christopher Walken, Amy Adams, and Martin Sheen. Music by John Williams.

    The typographic star is Ray Larabie’s Coolvetica, with hyper-extended glyphs. First released in 1999, Coolvetica is “based on an American chain store logo circa 1970 […] an era where everyone was modifying Helvetica.” (Typodermic) The most striking differences between Larabie’s funky display burlesque and the original Helvetica are found in j q t y Q. It’s paired with a digital version of Hellenic Wide, possibly Hefty (FontBank, Inc., 1993).

    Creative Directors: Kuntzel + Deygas
    Layout & Typography: Olivier Marquézy

      Thanks Florian! It’s crazy they used Coolvetica within a few years of its release!

      With a lot of designers getting really proficient with Adobe After Effects, I expect to see a return of inventive title sequences.
