Daily Inspiration: “Imaginary Forces” Delivers Stunning Titles

Imaginary Forces is a Design Company, Production House and Creative Agency based in Los Angeles and New York. Working with film titles, branding, commercials, broadcast design packages, interactive spaces, new content, virtual destinations, and experience design, they “design, write, strategize, draw, shoot, animate, edit and deliver”… basically they do it all. Their portfolio site (here) is a great source for inspiration, especially for title design, a.k.a. the film sequences you see at the beginning of a movie.

Tackling a slew of amazing projects for every major film studio, Imaginary Forces also became the first company in Emmy history to receive three nominations in the Main Title Design category for their work in Human Target, Nurse Jackie, and The Pacific.  Visit their site to check out some of their most recent projects, and The Art of the Title to view some of their older projects, such as the title design for Mission Impossible and Arlington Road.

Marvel Comics



Client: Marvel Entertainment
Project Info: “Marvel Enterprises hoped to distill its identity into an animated moment in time that would fuse Marvel’s illustrious comic book history and its current film projects, while making an emotive connection with its audience. Our solution was a flipbook-style animation that transforms into typography, ultimately forming the Marvel logotype. The animation provides a modular, customized structure and serves as a point of interface between Marvel and its multi generational audience. By imitating the act of reading comic books, we dimensionalized the piece and the brand both visually and conceptually, in form and content.” View the film sequence here.
