“Quantum of Solace” Opening Animation
The title sequence for “Quantum of Solace” just came to mind and I remembered thinking that it was really well done. MK12 designed the typeface and the opening credits for the film.
MK12 custom designed the typeface which looks like a classic Helvetica-ike grotesque. The type, created from scratch, was modelled around the perfectly circular O’s, which were originally meant to symbolize bullet casings. The animation style incorporates the classic travelling dot from the barrel sequence, which precedes the opening titles in almost all of the Bond films. Also, by utilising the sporadic blinking of basic shapes, the font animates in tandem with the staccatos of the main title score and pays homage to the opening titles from Dr. No (1962) and its designer, Maurice Binder.
