We were asked by Fontmasters to talk about how typeface is important to our work. We rely on typeface to not only present the titles and credits of our films to our audience, but also to support the tone of the subject matter. As we looked back on our work starting with Journey of the Opportunist (2008), we found our aesthetic pulled us toward a selection of clean, sans serif typefaces. We are aware of the subtle variations in our selection of unadorned typefaces, including Franklin Gothic, Gotham, and Alte Haas Grotesk, and what that may say about the subjects of our films.
