Trajan in Movie Posters at SXSW in half an hour
I am very excited about bringing ScreenFonts – arguably the most successful series on The FontFeed – live on stage, here at SXSW Interactive 2012. Two Decades of Trajan in Movie Posters is a semi-serious investigation about the most popular typeface in movie poster history, and touches upon type selection, typography trends in movie posters, and the omni-presence of Trajan. Wish me luck, I have about 400 seats to fill.
The FontFeed is a daily dispatch of recommended fonts, typography techniques, and inspirational examples of digital type at work in the real world. Eat up.
