Virtuoso: Pablo Ferro and the Art of Film Title Design

In collaboration with AIGA, the professional association for design, and The Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Film Department, we are pleased to present a talk by legendary graphic designer and film-titles designer Pablo Ferro on September 21, 2011 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Ferro, hailed as a genius by well-known director Stanley Kubrick, is lauded for his unique and influential visual style in films like Dr. Strangelove, A Clockwork Orange, and more recently, Good Will Hunting and Napolean Dynamite, as well as in television, animation, commercials, novels and now children’s books. Ferro is best known for quick-cutting, using multiple images within one frame, and his trademark hand-drawn lettering.

The event is open to the public.
