As someone who grew up watching X-Men, I’m thrilled to see how it has evolved over the years. From a Saturday morning cartoon to a movie franchise, it has now evolved into a new animated series on G4 TV and I Love it !!
Take a look at the use of typography in this first video. I like the way the design team integrates both the English and Japanese fonts together. I also like the way the text is animated in to introduce each character. Without a doubt, it adds to the dramatic feel of the open.
Original 90′s Version
It’s pretty obvious the designers studied the original open and then built on from it. In the original though, each character was given his own specific font. Take a look!
