Type and Film

Film title design, production logos, type props

Designing type for film and animation is simple as it is complex. Type and lettering are used in many ways – it ranges from pure film title design inside of a movie or music video (film logo, credits, in-between titles) to film marketing-related material (Film Posters, Merch, Social Media). It makes sense to connect all these things, to achieve an even visual tone, and to vocalize the atmosphere of the film.

[Film and animation has a connection to type. It is tool to present information (seperatly like the names of cast and crew or as a active part of the expression of the movie).]

Web type animation

One way is to set text statically for regular typographic use. Another way is to animate type. I am fascinated by the undiscovered areas of animated type in web applications.

Myzel Typeface

Therefore I made a few research projects, like the variable font Myzel, which is also used on this website. The moving font (with the help of algorithms and CSS) you can see here:

Responsive Lettering

To explore web animated fonts further, this is an example, made with an extension for a type editor which was written by Erik von Blokland. If you resize your browser window you can see that the letter behaves responsive.
