Forrest Wickman discusses the art of the title sequence:

PBS Arts’ Off Book series looks at a few of the greatest title sequences of recent years, speaking with the designers behind such iconic title sequences as those for Se7enBlue ValentineZombieland, and—a Slate favorite—Mad Men. I’d be happy to look back at any of these great sequences any time, but even more interesting is hearing the designers talk about their subtle touches. For Zombieland, for example, it was important that the font be inconspicuous, so that viewers focused on how the characters interacted with the titles.
