Main titles — those catchy openings to movies and TV shows that can get stuck in your head — are all about creating powerful impressions, and that requires great design.

We spoke to the creative director about her work, and extracted a few valuable lessons — covering everything from typography to working with clients — that all designers can learn from.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

...Sarofsky’s minimalist main-on-end titles for Captain America: The Winter Soldier exemplify the newfound function of the end credits. Perfectly distilling the essence of the Russo brothers’ action-packed potboiler, the sequence plays up familiar superhero iconography and pares down the themes and characters to their most basic elements. Stars and stripes, shields and skulls, gears and tentacles, a grand conspiracy unfolding as heroes and villains battle it out in silhouette. Given the morally complex and uncertain world in which the film operates, the stark black, white, and red palette of the sequence provides an unexpected, contrasting backdrop...

So we worked within a style that has simple, graphic compositions with strong, legible typography. Of course, we are respectfully bowing to the master, Saul Bass, here...

"I have been fielding a lot of questions like this lately"

There’s been a lot of discussion lately about Marvel’s lack of representation of female heroes. If you could design a title sequence for a film about a female Marvel superhero, who would that be? "As a woman in a male-dominated industry, I have been fielding a lot of questions like this lately. For now, I am hoping that Black Widow gets her own movie. I think it would be an interesting film, because she’s such a complex character. Exploring that angle in a main title would be really fascinating..."
