Stranger Things

'As for Stranger Things: While Benguiat says he has yet to watch the show, he likes how his typeface was used in the credits. "They paired it with Avant Garde, which was designed by my old ITC partner, Herb Lubalin," he notes. "Herb named Benguiat after me, so it's like old times. We're back in the driver's seat together again!"'- Fast Company Design
A disjointed version of "The Stranger Things" title starts the sequence, typographically setting the tone for the show. Imbuing the opening with a sense of unease, the music informs the movement of the type as the letterforms slide together to form the title. "The Stranger Things" main title mimics an optical look which reflects the time period.
