True Blood Font

Camm Rowland was the Type Designer behind the gorgeous font used in the opening credits of 'True Blood'. He was influenced by makeshift signage that he saw along the roadside.

To create the 'True' family fonts he drew each letter by hand, cut each letter out with an x-acto knife, and then scanned them in to the computer. He created 8 font families altogether!

The fonts used in the opening sequence of the show were a mixture between “True Gothic” and “True Blade” which had alternate characters and weights - so it adds to the hand made quality.

I found a great site that has a behind the scenes look at how the opening sequences were filmed by Digital Kitchen (who also filmed the opening sequences of Dexter and Six Feet Under)
