About Art of the Title

Art of the Title is a design archive, online publication, and educational resource dedicated to the art of title sequence design in film, TV, and beyond. We explore the worlds of filmmaking, television, motion graphics and graphic design, animation, and so much more. In each article, we take an exciting in-depth look at a title sequence and the designers, filmmakers, animators, and craftspeople behind it.

Fans of the site include directors David Fincher (Se7enFight Club), Ava DuVernay (13th, Selma), Edgar Wright (Baby DriverScott Pilgrim vs. The World), Josh Safdie (Uncut GemsGood Time), and many more.


I love the site. It’s really beautiful. I would much rather have anything and everything about the title sequence be on Art of the Title than in USA Today or any publication like that. Your site is the proper context for this conversation.”

Art of the Title takes hours of research, writing, video editing, and so much more every week. But there isn't some enormous team making it all happen. Believe it or not, Art of the Title is a one-person operation supported by generous sponsors and readers like you! That's right — one person runs, manages and maintains the site and all its channels.

The costs to maintain the site are high, especially since Vimeo, our video-hosting service, decided in 2020 to suddenly raise its prices. Our fees were raised from $200 per year to $3000 per year for this service. 

Though Art of the Title is a site without peer in its niche and an important resource for many industries, it has always been primarily a labour of love. In order for the site to continue to bring you this great content, to shine a light on this amazing work, we need your help. 

If you find value in Art of the Title, if you’ve ever been inspired by what you've found on the site, used it as research for your projects, in your presentations, in your teaching materials, and been sucked into a time vortex of oohs and ahhs, it's time to give back. Help us keep the site going. Becoming a patron of the site right here will help ensure we can continue making Art of the Title. 




Patreon is a system that enables fans to support and engage with the creators they love. It's a crowd-funding service kind of like Kickstarter, except you can support a project on an ongoing basis, each time we publish something new. For Art of the Title, you can help the site with server and video fees and keep us producing and publishing our great content.

When you become a patron, you will receive our exclusive patron-only newsletter!


As Criterion is to home video and Cinefex is to visual effects, Art of the Title is to title design.




We publish between one to four in-depth feature articles per month – four is the maximum. Even pledging $1 per article is a great help and will contribute toward making it possible for the site to continue in its current form – and maybe even get some minor design updates! Your support will go directly toward server and Vimeo hosting costs, toward our wonderful back-end developers, and to compensating our tiny staff for the many, many hours of work the site requires. 

If you love what we're doing and want to ensure Art of the Title can continue to exist, help us by becoming a patron! Every little bit helps.
