The New Yorker Fiction Issue

June 4, 2013

I’m excited to have six pieces in The New Yorker’s annual Summer Fiction Issue, entitled “Crimes & Misdemeanors.” The theme was noir fiction, and I was asked to come up with ‘title cards’ to represent each fiction piece.

We tried to cover an array of styles from Gothic to Western to 70’s Bollywood, depending on the premise of stories. Two of the pieces were laser cut, all of them were shot on top of textures or old photos to capture the noir vernacular. Also, a great video trailer was shot for the issue (featuring dry ice and fake cocaine).

Huge thanks goes out to Jordan and Wyatt! This was a ton of fun.
