Empire Design is the agency behind the SP posters - and several Bond poster campaigns.
The "main" posters aren't my favourite posters, necessarily, but I quite like the teaser stuff. There are some nice posters from other movies on their website; High-Rise, for example.
A font design website I follow, had a post on the Spectre logo, and a guy called Tom Brooks - who did the logo apparently, left an interesting comment:
«Wonderful to see this on this blog. I designed the Spectre logo as part of my role as a senior at Empire Design. We have worked on the last 4 Bond movies.
On the question of the ubiquity of “Gotham” as a typeface, I totally understand this argument, but the decision was practical as much as it was aesthetic. We’ve just finished adapting the title style for use in something like 20 different languages. The letterforms of Gotham lend themselves perfectly to adaptation for an audience of this size.
The general public don’t see yet-another-instance-of-gotham, they see an ominous word picked ominously out of darkness with a 007 logo beneath as a confident, knowing sign off.»
Here's the post on Fonts In Use.
That is so eye catching! Brilliant!
