Art of the Title talks to Sarofsky Corp.'s Erin Sarofsky about their end title sequence for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which was done in a minimalist style in a black, white and red palette.

Says Sarofsky, "The movie evokes 1970s conspiracy thriller cinema, but with a modern twist. We wanted to create a main title sequence that acknowledged that. So we worked within a style that has simple, graphic compositions with strong, legible typography. Of course, we are respectfully bowing to the master, Saul Bass, here… But we were also inspired by the graphic styling associated with Jim Steranko. His bold, graphic illustration style really spoke to us when it came time to illustrate the characters.The simple compositions spoke to us in a Russian constructivist kind of way. The use of positive and negative space also takes the look to another level, using the theory of gestalt to its full potential. And, in stereoscopic, this is brought to life in a way we’ve never seen before."
