Garson has won numerous awards and honors for his title design and motion graphics work including two Emmy nominationsGarson is also a visiting Lecturer for film title design at several universities In 2006, Yu+co broke new ground with the animated main on end title sequence for 300.

  • ATS: Were you responsible for the custom Marvel logo? GY: Yes I was responsible for the custom Marvel logo. Ang wanted to replace all the comic pictures with The Hulk images. The opening title sequence to Ang Lee’s Hulk begins with nothing less than a drop of water, the Big Bang and the origin story with echoes of Dr. Jekyll. ATS: Was the type design always integrated? Were the scenes shot and edited with the title placement already in mind? GY: Yes the scenes were shot with the placement of the titles in mind. I wanted to integrate the typography with the picture, reacting and interacting with the physical environment. I didn’t have time to plan everything before I went to San Francisco so I had to improvise a lot on set. A lot of design decisions were made in the post production stage because of that. The typography is a custom font designed to recall the movie’s comic book origins.
  • ” My inspiration usually comes from everyday life observation. I think I ’ m like other artists. Everything around us affects our thinking: our life experience, our memories of the past, our dreams for our future, our imagination at any moment in time. I guess everything from music, literature, art, films, TV, internet, pop culture, dancing, architecture, my kids, my dogs… everything around me inspires me. ”
