How fitting! A motion typography video about a type-face?!? Get outta here!Helvetica is a cool documentary, but you must be interested in the subject or else you will be really bored.
Motion typography, also known as kinetic typography, is awesome. I just love a well-done commercial or set of opening credits. I like how people make shapes, and move the words and letters, to create art. Maybe one day I will learn how to use Abode After Effects or something so I can make them myself.
Off Book trains a lens on the lives of various artists working in interactive art, online collective art, fashion design, typography, indie music, videogame art, and more. In three-to-five-minute video snapshots of creators who ride the cutting edge, viewers can explore the process, motivation, meaning, and relevance behind their work.
I think everyone loves the Mad Men opening credits. I like the visual aspect of the Breaking Bad opening credits, but the music is annoying to me. On the other hand, I love the music in the The Office and the 30Rock credits. In The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I did not understand the significance of the opening credits (comment on youtube said they were supposed to represent Lisbeth’s nightmares), they were just weird to me and in a different style than the film, but I liked the music.
After seeing Exit Through the Gift Shop, I learned that a) that I am not the type of person willing to break laws or scale buildings for art and b) you can make a lot of money if you are.
Laughing Squid is the best. It is my go-to for art and innovation.
From their ABOUT section:
Laughing Squid features interesting art, culture & technology from around the web. It is also an independently owned and operated cloud-based web hosting company. Laughing Squid was founded in 1995 by primary tentacle Scott Beale, who is the editor and head curator, joined by several awesome guest bloggers.
I have bookmarked a ton of their posts and, when I started this blog, I worried that I would just end up recreating Laughing Squid, so I avoided re-posting their posts.
But, I think that I was just being silly. I promise these are worth your time 🙂
