First leading role of Public Gothic
Of course some of you have seen Looper movie, an American science fiction thriller film written and directed by Rian Johnson. It revolves around criminal syndicates using contracted killers called "loopers" to kill victims sent through time travel.
There is a scene in Looper, our main character John rides his red Mazda to a club. He sees a billboard about telekinetic energy at left, a digital billboard. I designed a vintage typeface and I have stumbled upon it in the digital billboard of the sci-fi movie.
10 Seconds Only
My Public Gothic appeared 10 seconds long in Looper Movie. This 10 seconds seems to very long for something that you create but in fact its very short.
My girlfriend (now she is my wife) was sitting next to me and I couldn't say anything. Because I wasn't sure.
I mean, you think you saw your own font than you realize it isn't. I said nothing to my girlfriend. I went home and made research for some hours to be sure. After a few hours of research, we were celebrating my fonts first leading role.
In the Wild (2014)
Looper is not only one movie which shows our typeface Public Gothic, we have seen it in Wild (2014), an American biographical adventure drama film directed by Jean-Marc Vallée. Driven to the edge by the loss of her beloved mother (Laura Dern), the dissolution of her marriage and a headlong dive into self-destructive behavior, Cheryl Strayed (Reese Witherspoon) makes a decision to halt her downward spiral and put her life back together again. With no outdoors experience, a heavy backpack and little else to go on but her own will, Cheryl sets out alone to hike the Pacific Crest Trail -- one of the country's longest and toughest through-trails.
Welcome to Kennedy Meadows
Ms. Strayed in real life made a stop at the Kennedy Meadows. For the movie, it’s actually Paulina Lake Lodge that stood in as the film location for Kennedy Meadows. Gorgeously situated on the shore of majestic Paulina Lake inside Newberry Crater and the Newberry National Volcanic Monument.
My Public Gothic appears in the movie as a typeface of the Kennedy Meadows welcome signage.
Experience the fallout
Chernobyl Diaries is an American disaster horror film directed by Brad Parker and produced by Oren Peli, who also wrote the story. Six tourists hire an extreme tour guide who takes them to the abandoned city Pripyat, the former home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. During their exploration, they soon discover they are not alone.
10 seconds to 90 seconds
Public Gothic appeared 10 seconds long in Looper Movie but it appeared 90 seconds in Chernobyl Diaries Movie as the typeface of the end credits. It was also the title font of the movie poster.
