watching words move
Typographic design can be expressive in ways other than the look or style of individual type designs. The way that we organize letters into words can also tell a story and visually convey the meaning of the word. The challenge of this project is to demonstrate the meaning of words while avoiding the distractions of expressive or unusual typefaces. In limiting your solutions to a neutral typeface, the designer must seek out thoughtful, clever ways to demonstrate a word’s meaning.
As an extension of the watching words move project, students worked for one class period in teams to animate words using only paper, black/white, and a video camera.
