Next up in my series is “Love Finds Andy Hardy” from 1938!

Who will Andy Hardy take to the Christmas Eve dance and will he find a way to get the 18 dollars he needs to buy a car for the occasion!??! You’ll have to watch to find out, haha. Judy was assigned this part at MGM while Arthur Freed was putting together the team that would make her immortal, as Dorothy, in “The Wizard of Oz” the following year.

The main title type had a fun #stitched theme but I really loved the inline deco type used in the theatrical trailer so I created my piece based on that lettering instead. Imagine how big the type in the trailer would have been for audiences. The quiet and tracked-out sans-serif titles of today just seem plain and lethargic in comparison.

See a larger version on my site (link in profile) and learn more about the film and it’s variety of lettering styles on my blog!: www.raphaelgeroni.com/blog
