Starship Troopers



Screen grabs of the excellent typography in the advertisement from the amazing film Starship Troopers (1997) directed by Paul Verhoven  (who also made Robocop & Totall Recall which all satirise advertisement & war). Does anyone know who designed/made the Troopers advertisement.


Screen grabs from Paul Verhoeven's Robocop (1987) & Total Recall (1990) which is based on Philip K Dick’s ‘We Can Remember It For you Whole Sale’. These screen grabs are here for the type and/or logos in them.

Titles from Patlabor, Neon Genesis Evangelion Rebuild 3.33 and New Dominion Tank Police OVA

Heard on Daniel Bell’s excellent ‘The Buttoned Down Mind of Daniel Bell’ released in 2000 on Tresor records. Hear the mix here:

Rewatching the Patlabor OVA’s (the first two films are amazing, excellent soundtracks by Kenji Kawai, who also did the OST for Ghost In The Shell) and the logo and type is just marvellous.

The soundtrack contains one of my favourite songs to one of my favourite scenes ever. The whole film has a amazing atmosphere.
