Sketches: First Title Ideas

Using the same style used in the 1950's posters, I tried to create something similar for my film title " The Invisible Cannibals from Beyond the Stars", however being a long title I found difficult to get the composition right. But so far here is what I came up with.

So please B3D Give Feedback!! and choose what design fits better.


  1. I like the shape of the text (the way it's presented) on the first example.

    I think only the 'Invisible cannibals' should be stroked. (Not literaly mind you) The rest of the text (I think) should be a solid colour. Preferebly not yellow as it doesnt stand out against white.

    In saying that, chances are, its going to have a black background in the trailer.

    I'm personaly not that keen on the glow effect. Too photoshop.

    I don't know why, but I think if invisibilaty had to have a colour, it would have to be electric blue. So maybe experiment with the top example but with 'Invisible Cannibals' in blue and the rest as... erm... something else. Maybe a diferent shade of blue.

    I've said too much... Bye

  2. My money's on the middle design - 'cannibals' is a 'red' word absolutely!

  3. Thanks on the feedback... and yes I can post on pc but not on mac :(

  4. Try taking away the white and just leaving the glow. e.g. leaving invisible text.
