William Wallace / Icon Productions
To invoke the element of surprise of William Wallace’s uprising in the film Braveheart, Prologue created a main title that shows up beyond the fog of war. The frame is covered in mist, shrouding whatever might appear. When the title does show up, it quickly approaches the camera and grows in size, much like Wallace’s campaign for freedom. The typography made for this title draws inspiration from lettering used on coat-of-arms during the 14th century when the film takes place.
