The Little Death is an Australian comedy by Director Josh Lawson, about four suburban couples and their various kinky proclivities. See also the movie poster, designed by Dave Foster. Scott Geersen, who designed the movie’s titles and end credits, writes:
When I was given the opportunity to pitch titles for the movie, my first impressions were from reading a draft of the script emailed to me by the director. What I read was provocative, eye-opening, emotional, thoughtful, a little weird, and blackly hilarious – often all at once. […]
I aimed to show diagrams and instructions that were beautiful in their simplicity and matter-of-factness. Stylistically, there are nods to Ikea manuals and airline safety cards – right down to the vacant or random expressions often seen in such illustrations. The layout and diagrams are classic, minimal, clean. The typographic detail was extremely important, chosen to represent the printed encyclopaedias I remembered from childhood, with finer text rendered as lines and blocks in order to concentrate the viewers attention on the main credits.
