This Is 40

What’s in 40 years? For Pentagram’s recent 40th anniversary party in New York, partner Emily Oberman and her team assembled a montage of classic movie moments from the past four decades of Academy Award winners for Best Picture. The designers looked at hundreds of sequences from all 40 films, from “The Godfather” to “The Artist,” and edited together 40 cheers, 40 kisses, 40 dance moves, 40 ka-booms, and more. The clips were projected during our party, where they helped inspire many new moments, all of them celebratory. Here’s to another 40!

Project Team: Emily Oberman, partner-in-charge and lead designer; Jonathan Correira, designer; Laura Tomaselli, editor; Graham Holly, animator; Lucea Spinelli, project coordinator.
