I came across this lovely clip of the opening credits for the movie The Fearless Vampire Killers (Roman Polansk, 1967).
While researching French design of the 50s and 60s, I found many typefaces lean towards script and looked like they could possibly just be written by hand rather than printed. These opening titles caught my eye because it and after reading about it, it turns out they were hand drawn by André François, an important French designer.
At first I thought it was a little sloppy, but after looking closer, I find it gives a sort of creepy, yet artistic feeling. I kind of think “crazy stalker girl in love,” only with fangs.
