Is it Pacioli also the typeface used for the shows opening credits? As seen in Kevin Spacey above.
That’s correct. I have added a few images from the opening credits to the post. Note that Pacioli does not have an ampersand — seems that Adobe’s Trajan picks up the slack.
I assume this style was chosen in reference to the many carved inscriptions on monuments in Washington, DC.
Many thanks Florian. I will also suggest the style was chosen in reference to its use by Roman empire and Roman Catholic Church. Monumental letters evoke notions of power and authority which fits well with the show’s theme.
From what I hear, movie posters designers loath Adobe Trajan because it was seen as the cliché movie poster font for so long. I once saw Corey Holms talk about going out of his way not to use it and using Requiem instead.
It took work for Kellerhouse to track Pacioli down, no doubt. Yves Peters made a cool list of alternatives, what a guy?!
