Easily my favorite movie so far this year is Jason Reitman’s Thank You For Smoking. It was a funny, well written and well acted movie that was well worth the 6 bucks I spent on it at the Independent movie theatre near my apartment (The Tivoli, for those in St. Louis). But something else I really liked was the cool opening credits that all mimicked the fonts and designs of old cigarette boxes. I was intrigued enough to even ponder on working some of those design elements into this very site…but how would I ever find the fonts? Typographi to the rescue! Their article, Font Spotting the Thank You for Smoking Titles, breaks it all down. Where would the world be without font geeks?
