I see the logic of your argument Gunnar, but we're talking not about
brochures, but *films* where people who make almost no difference to the
aesthetic quality of the film are given credit [auto-hire companies,
catering services] yet typographists are not

this started with consideration of Woody Allen's films, and I must say
that I have admired the severity, restraint, and consistency of his
title sequences over the years

and i couldn't care less who supplies sandwiches and cars
to the film crew
