ARD’s new pre-prime-time series promises good entertainment and we are proud to present our exciting title design for “Matterns Revier”!
The Story: Manfred Mattern is a former police inspector, who was forced into early retirement by his recent heart attack. But instead of having a relaxed time, Mattern has to take care of his good old friends, since they seem to get into all kinds of trouble. Misfortunes never come singly.
The design’s look and typography are inspired by neon signs in the “Ruhrpott” region. As you know, everything we design has to move! So we mixed the cheerful colors with comic frameworks and animated an icon for each character. To get the viewer in touch with the background story, we wrote a voice over text for the opening title. Matterns best friend Ecki introduces Matterns environment, his so called “Revier” and the appendant characters with his individual charm.
The show was produced by our friends at Odeon TV. Our job ranged from the first Styleframe to the final Rendering.
