Harry Potter and the Order of Typography

18 Nov 2007

After seeing Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix my lasting impression of the film was the gorgeous attention to detail to type style. From Daily Prophets to Weasly products, the loving care with which typefaces where chosen or drawn is to be praised. Rather than fall back on clichéd serif faces, chunky, slightly distressed, sans-serifs and slab serifs are used to give the film a unique feel. So when the DVD finally arrived last week, I couldn’t wait to take some screengrabs:

I’m not 100%, but I reckon that they’re using a mixture of Champion Gothic (sans-serif) and Ziggurat (serif), both by Hoefler and Frere Jones

Also, thanks the Kottke for pointing me to this article on Design Observer, also talking about the Harry Potter visuals.
