"Nancy Drew" - Main Titles pitch. Elastic. (2019)
To conceive a pitch for the main titles for "Nancy Drew", I took inspiration from the sleeve designs of the classic 70s and 80s novels - reaching for a painterly feel and a somewhat surreal and nightmarish palette. It’s a shadowy, contrasty style where darkness, rain and mist obscure and create a sense of unease and mystery.
As always, I sought to consider motion with elements such as the continual rain, the lighthouse beams and birds, the tree limbs that might move like a spider in the breeze, and so forth.
