Open Road’s branding and design division, PopClutch, last week rolled out a new hyper-energized main title sequence for HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, now in its 21st season.
With music performed by punk-pop band Green Day, the edgy motion graphics illustrate the types of thorny issues that the weekly news commentary show takes on.
Fun fact: Sharre Jacoby, who joined Open Road from Known to launch PopClutch, has worked on every iteration of Real Time’s main titles since the show launched in 2003.
