F I R E W A L K E R - J U N G L E F I R E ( N a c i o n a l R e c o r d s )
I was asked to design and art direct the opening and closing titles of "Firewalker". A short film directed by Alejo Restrepo and Roger Gonzalez, inspired by the music of Los Angeles based Latin-Funk band Jungle Fire and their last album Tropicoso.
I came up with two different styles to develop the main titles, and the three parts/chapters.
Main titles were based on LSC Caslon Bold typeface and inspired by Motown aestetics and Jackie Brown - Tarantino's movie poster. I also took some other refences from Firence typeface by Herb Lubalin.
Chapter titles were completely hand drawn from scratch with markers and brush pens.
Here are the opening titles in order of appareance:
Some shots of the closing titles:
Part 1. The Man:
Part 2. The Gathering:
Part 3. The Awakening:
And here's the final result. Watch the short film and visit http://firewalker-themovie.com for more info.
Hope you like it as much as I enjoyed the process!
