Next up in my series is “Everybody Sing” from 1938! The film teams up Judy and Billie Burke one year before they were immortalized as Dorothy and Glinda the Good Witch in “The Wizard of Oz.” It’s a musical comedy where Judy plays a precocious singing daughter of a madcap theatrical family who saves them from financial ruin with help from their Russian maid (Fanny Brice, in a rare film role!) and singing chef. Why not? haha.

The main title type uses a very lovely deco sans serif and the trailer uses more of that fun deco bulb typography I’ve been seeing a lot of. I combined both for my reinterpretation and I am really loving working with “bulbs” as building blocks for type.
