Pablo Ferro Dies: Award-Winning Title Designer On ‘A Clockwork Orange’, ‘Dr. Strangelove’ Was 83

Pablo Ferro, who is known for his distinct title design and work in graphic design, died of complications from pneumonia Friday in Sedona, Arizona. The award-winning designer was 83.

Born on January 15, 1935 in Cuba, Ferro, a self-taught artist became known for eye-catching and stylized title design in film which included iconic films including Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange and Dr. Strangelove as well as others such as Bullitt, Men In Black, and Married to the Mob. During the mid-’50s he worked in animation before working with Disney animator Tytla who would become his mentor. He also worked with the would-be legend Stan Lee on a series of sci-fi and adventure comics.

In 1961, Ferro and fellow artists Fred Mogubgub and Lew Schwartz partnered to create their own company. Ferro then went on to create Pablo Ferro Films.

Ferro became a trailblazer when it came to montage-like title sequences, creative stylistic typefaces and quick-cut editing.
