You shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but cover art is often carefully designed to reflect the inside of the book and draw a reader to take notice. The same goes for the opening title sequences of TV shows. Producers and artists often go to great lengths to create the perfect sequence to introduce their show and pull viewers into their world.
I came across a great clip from PBS that interviews a few designers about the art of crafted opening titles. Watch it below and then watch a few of my personal favorite opening sequences from the last few years.
What’s your favorite opening title sequence?
