I loved the design of the 87th Academy Awards ceremony last night, and it looks like I wasn’t the only one. Bloomberg Business reported that the design work was done by Henry Hobson, a live action director and graphic designer. It turns out that I’ve seen some of his work before in a few other title sequences, such as the one from The Walking Dead.
I particularly loved the typography used throughout the Oscars. One other little detail I really liked was how the titles used for the best sound editing nominees looked like an audio timeline.
Update: Art of the Title has a much better writeup of the 87th Academy Awards, along with an interview with Henry Hobson.
