Last night I saw Submarine, a British film made by Warp Films and directed by Richard Ayoade (of The It Crowd and stuff). It was thoughtful, touching and funny. Slightly saccharine but quirky enough to get away with it.

I really enjoyed it. I also very much liked the opening credits, which were simple but striking – white text in capitals, with words stretched out to fit the screen, on light blue background. I can’t find an image to show you, but my search has uncovered a blog that celebrates the design of film credit sequences: Forget the Film, Watch the Titles! As an added treat, it also has images of some of Saul Bass’s brilliant film posters.
