2018 Titles


SXSW celebrated 25 years of their film festival and asked Coat of Arms to create a special title sequence to celebrate the occasion. Featuring 26 different short films from prior years, we designed 26 unique title sequences with clever animated illustrations as an homage to each short film and meant to engage festival attendees. Armed with a fantastic team of artists and an artistically collaborative and supportive client, we are thankful for the opportunity to be a part of one of our favorite festivals. Enjoy the show!
