Case in point, "Brothers". The typeface on top is used in the one-sheets and obviously, the site. Love the disjointed cut style on the bottom.
But the trailer has the old stand-by. Trajan. What gives?

Beautiful handcrafted type treatment trailer by BYU design students and faculty, for the 5th Typophile Film Festival. I love the tactile-ness of the typefaces, and according to the post, everything in the film is real—no CG effects. HT to art director Jennifer Lai for shooting this my way.

For its new logo, Conan explained his motives: “I wanted a logo that acknowledged the long, rich tradition of The Tonight Show while still looking good on hats, T-shirts, mugs, lawn furniture, notebooks, stemware, urns, defibrillators, water bottles, cell phones, sports equipment, pens, vacuums, chimes and our new line of unisex cologne.”
Where can I order my urn?
Looks like they used House Industries Neutra face. Great looking font. Although they should've used a real apostrophe.
It's a BIG improvement over the last logo.

I was thrilled to check my email inbox this morning to find a very nice thank you note from superstar designer, Michael Doret for reviewing his then work-in-progress typeface, Deliscript. You've seen his work most notably the Knicks logo.
He even included a copy of this beautiful typeface. Which I can't wait to use. I wish I had it 5 years ago when I did the Carl's Jr. Pastrami burger commercial. There's a ton of signage in that commercial. I ended up using House Industries Sign Painter (along with real sign painters). But Deliscript would've been a hell of a lot better.
Love the attention to detail. There are so many alternates and different ways to set the text using the OpenType pallete. Love the tails and the ability to make them longer and choose different styles.
Truly a beautiful typeface. Buy it here.

The typeface has appeared on several record sleeves; a slightly modified version appears on the cover of LFO's Sheath, designed by The Designers Republic.
HT to the magnificent Don Lupo for the find

Note the new wordmark with custom details to complement the "fierce" Lion logo.
This customization applies to the numeral typography, as well. Check out the swoopes in the corners of the numbers.
C'mon Paul. MUCH better than last year's hideocity.

The typeface "Hawaiian Starlight" in Sand makes me want to hurl more than the spinning of the stars.

I noticed that it looked strangely familiar:
Then I realized, that it's highly likely that type designer Ed Benguiat designed the opening titles. I was unable to verify it, so if any one knows, let me know. Here are a couple of other pieces from Ed's type design. Here and here.
