Quantum of typefaces in No. 22

Quantum Of Solace


2008’s Bond film, Quantum of Solace, has a number of distinctive typographic treats. Yves Peters has already posted twice on this topic, over at FontShop’s FontFeed and fontshop.be. He has detailed some interesting stories about MK12, Tomato, and the creation of the title sequence and location cards.

Rather than repost the same articles, this is simply a chronological series of images from the film showing the many specimens of type. The location cards and intro are obvious interesting examples, but when collecting those various images, many more typefaces popped up throughout the film.

    This supremo review of QoS sums the film up rather well, I think ;-)
    At least the bit on the city-font thing is funny – http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=quantum_of_phallus

    I have to agree, sadly. This was no Casino Royale, but at least there was some interesting type. I am torn between thinking that the location cards were totally lame and, like Maddox says, the ethnic-looking fonts are condescending to the audience – yet, at the same time I am happy to just see some different type on the screen.

    Moreover though, this plethora of type did not make up for a weak story…
