From: Interview by Will Carey, Creative Chair
Do you think that the logograms in the movie Arrival were the most appropriate output for the alien language, or, if you had been in involved at an earlier stage, would you have suggested an alternative design?
I think the logograms looked very nice. If we’d been involved earlier then, yes, we might have suggested slightly different ways to assemble them from grammatical parts. But I don’t think people watching the movie (as opposed to picking apart every frame!) would have noticed the difference.
