Knives Out is the critically-acclaimed and Oscar-nominated film written and directed by Rian Johnson. A twisty whodunnit that breathes new life into the genre with its sharp script, stellar ensemble cast, and wicked humor.
We created a custom typeface inspired by (and an homage to) classic Agatha Christie novels for the title and worldwide advertising campaign. A mix of sinister serifs and playful curves sets the tone for this knife-sharp whodunnit.
