As one of the most revered and inspiring sci-fi films in history, Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner has a legacy like no other. And who better to take the helm of Blade Runner 2049 than director Denis Villeneuve.

Following an emotional scene requires a high level of restraint and respect for the story. So our challenge was to perform this as a minimal “type only” end credit sequence. One direction that seemed to resonate with designers Toros Kose, Chris Bjerre and Nicolas Girard was a glitch treatment - compatible with the story of a future that had been altered by a blackout. So we found an opportunity using a very simple, but detailed palette. And animated to the ominous and amazing score created by Hans Zimmer & Benjamin Wallfisch, it seemed like the perfect way to end such an incredible film.

Though we were not invited to pitch the opening, we could not resist ( after all – It’s Blade Runner! ). So we presented several versions before landing on a glitch version. The trick of course is to do this in a way that still respects the studio brand.

In addition, we explored a highly detailed hologram version, created by designer Chris Bjerre that would ultimately appear in the chosen treatment’s first scene. Though it was not used in all it’s glory - it is just too good not to show…
