Dan Perri

You’re sat in a cinema. The lights are down. The curtain’s up. The ads and trailers have come and gone. What’s the first thing you see when the film starts? It’s easy to take for granted, but a film’s opening title sequence is fundamental to setting the tone and sparking our imagination. Indeed, an ill-fitting title treatment can have an adverse effect on the audience’s emotional engagement – just imagine ‘Star Wars’ in Comic Sans.

So how do you avoid a typographic catastrophe? For legendary title designer Dan Perri – who fell in love with letters aged 12 when he began painting signs for local stores and whose 40-year career encompasses some 400 films and television projects – a title sequence should reflect the personality of the movie as much as the maker. “A good title conveys a message while relating to the most important elements of the story or lead character,” he explains. A staunch advocate of tailoring a typeface to an individual film’s needs Perri will be sharing the stories behind his most iconic title designs.
