American Graffiti | Title Sequence

Design

American Graffiti is a period piece that captures the feeling of the late 1950s and early 1960s, when the movie takes place. ​The story predominantly occurs in and around the characters’ distinct hot rods. The soundtrack is a compilation of late 50s and early 60s hits that was certified triple platinum and became a phenomenon in its own right. ​

This title sequence roots the movie into this era, focusing on the physical representation of music (radios) and incorporating the color palette of hot-rods from the late 1950s and early 1960s.
