From director Ridley Scott, based on the novel by Cormac McCarthy. A successful lawyer becomes entangled in a complex drug plot, through nasty twists falling deeper and deeper in over his head.
Working with Ridley Scott and editor Pietro Scalia I developed a simple but elegant sequence of typographic choreography which inter-cuts with vignettes introducing the main cast.
The typography reflects the interweaving characters and plot line, subtly transitioning from one credit to the next in unexpected and surprising ways.
The colour palette in turn echos the sunburnt landscape of New Mexico in which the plot is set and the pet Cheetah of one of the main characters played by Cameron Diaz.
