Hi! I’m Gerben Dollen, smart capo at @TypeMafia. I really enjoy sharing my on- and offline observations. Every now and then I write my musings on design, typography in particular, and other interesting things I come across.
I never watch science fiction horror, but the opening titles (and theme song) of Stranger Things really sucked me into watching this great series. As today marks the darkest day of the year, the upcoming holiday season makes a perfect timing for an intense marathon session.

To be honest: the great archive Fonts In Use teased me into giving the series a try and since then I was hooked. Apart from this affair I love the platform so much that my good intention for the new year is to contribute some noteworthy uses.
This interview (which I actually haven’t read yet) showcases a few early versions and demos — giving a sneak peak at the process and considerations. I think conferences like Typographics should invite title sequence designers to speak about what’s happening behind the scenes.
What do you recommended to watch during Christmas?
