Profound in the Profane: Movie quotes Typography

Posted:

My Fascination with telling stories through the medium of visuals is highly influenced by Movies, Stand-up comedy, and
music. The precision and meticulousness of the art of cinema captivates me and inspires me to do more, I love how a
single scene or line can represent an entire feeling an entire philosophy once you see the movie.

From the discipline of graphic design, I gravitate towards typography, the art, and technique of arranging type to make
written language legible, readable, and appealing when displayed. It’s an exciting challenge to say it better… to
allow the letters and words to have the character to represent an emotion to pinpoint a context in which the word or
phrase is used.

To top it all of I love connecting dots similarities in the hero’s journey, intersections between personas..l these
combined with the #stackingammo challenge created a few artworks that remind people of the scenes feelings and contexts

the idea here is to have an insider connection between the people who love the scenes and characters as much as I do, to
give way to express their love through elegant and expressive artworks.

A Few Good Men

A Few Good Men is a 1992 American legal drama film based on
Aaron Sorkin’s 1989 play of the same name. the most Quoted scene in my circle from the movie is the line in a
heated debate between a young attorney general played by Tom Cruise asking a Decorated Coleniel about battle
casualties holding back details in a cour stand 
the Conversation Goes

Judge Randolph: [to Kaffee from the judge’s bench] Consider yourself in contempt!

Kaffee: Colonel Jessup, did you order the Code Red?

Judge Randolph: You don’t have to answer that question!

Col. Jessup: I’ll answer the question!

Col. Jessup [to Kaffee]: You want answers?

Kaffee: I think I’m entitled to.

Col. Jessep: You want answers?

Kaffee: I WANT THE TRUTH!

Col. Jessup: YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

Last Knights

Though the movie was not a complete box office success Last Knights starring morgan freeman, It is a tale of valor
and honor set against a backdrop of an empire boasting of ministers, noblemen and warriors of various ethnicity.
Morgan Freman Plays an emperor that mentors a warrior and drops gems of wisdom in their conversation one of which is
the line

“Remember, wounds of honor are self-inflicted”
this line has stuck with me since first watching the movie back in 2011 and decided to a desktop and phone wallpaper
for it

Mad Men

A drama Television movie series about one of New York’s most prestigious ad agencies at the beginning of the
1960s, focusing on one of the firm’s most mysterious but extremely talented ad executives, Donald Draper.
I Love the Don Draper, played  and his character arch in the story of the series one of the very many quotes I
love from the series by the character  Don Draper where he says 

People tell you who they are, but we ignore it – because we want them to be who we want them to be.

I wanted to experiment with the idea that people read typography with color and say the quote in a way that is
expressive of the poignant idea of the quote
