Monsters Inc title sequence

The Monsters Inc title sequence by Susan Bradley is heavily inspired by Saul Bass as it completley relies on graphics to create a introduction proologue to the film. The linear design creates a certain style and feel to the title sequence that conveys the narrative and is shared within most graphic title sequences such as the anatomy of murder and westside story. As this is a later title sequence than Sauls work the design is more intricut and tells the narrative more obviously and artistcally due to the improved technology that later designers have access to.The chosen serif font connotes the theme of monsters as it looks irregular and slightly freakish however the way the designer has used the text as almost a prop in the narrative makes it fun and child friendly and therefore reflects the target audience of the film which is families and specifically children.
