Conan O’Brien’s Farewell Speech in Kinetic Typography | The FontFeed

Just when you thought you’ve seen them all, along comes a kinetic typography project reassuring you that, yes indeed, there still is potential in the medium. This video was created by Jacob Gilbreath, a graphic design student at Oklahoma State University with an emphasis in motion graphics. It visualises a portion of the farewell speech from Conan O’Brien’s final episode of The Tonight Show on NBC. Conan describes his feelings about NBC and the situation at hand. His personality exudes positivity and humour, and this monologue characterises him very well. Even through the hardships of leaving NBC he promotes hard work and kindness.

ONE OF THE MOST DELIGHTFUL AND INNOVATIVE POP-UP BOOKS I HAVE EVER SEEN.—Robert Sabuda From the lenticular cover that changes with the angle of your hands, all the way to the Z, ABC3D is as much a work of art as it is a pop-up book. Each of the 26 dimensional letters move and change before your eyes. C turns into D with a snap. M stands at attention. X becomes Y with a flick of the wrist. And then there's U... Boldly conceived and brilliantly executed with a striking black, red, and white palette, this is a book that readers and art lovers of all ages will treasure for years to come. MARION BATAILLE is graphic and book designer who has never before been published in this country. She lives in Paris. This is just a hand-made mock-up of the actual book which publishes in Oct. 2008. We couldn't be more excited about it.

Beautiful Losers the Film

Beautiful Losers celebrates the spirit behind one of the most influential cultural movements of a generation. In the early 1990's a loose-knit group of likeminded outsiders found common ground at a little NYC storefront gallery. Rooted in the DIY (do-it-yourself) subcultures of skateboarding, surf, punk, hip hop & graffiti, they made art that reflected the lifestyles they led. Developing their craft with almost no influence from the "establishment" art world, this group, and the subcultures they sprang from, have now become a movement that has been transforming pop culture. Starring a selection of artists who are considered leaders within this culture, Beautiful Losers focuses on the telling of personal stories...speaking to themes of what happens when the outside becomes "in" as it explores the creative ethos connecting these artists and today's youth.

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz : Journal : Mark Boulton

A few days ago, Keeran sent me a link to this video by Job & Roel Wouters. It’s such a beautifully simple piece. Watching Job draw the letterforms is mesmeric enough, but when his son (?) joins in, I found myself laughing as he tries to imitate his fathers work. This leads to some funny-looking characters (c and d are particular favourites of mine).

Pris en une seule séquence, le film a été tourné en live le 30 juin dernier, lors de l’ouverture du festival Nederclips du Stedelijk Museum’s-Hertogenbosch et tourné à l’aide d’une équipe de professionnels du trampoline.



Our objective was to use type as the main aesthetic and design element to create awareness about the evolution and main characteristics of typography. Both the music and voice over used in the piece make reference to 1950’s TV and Radio advertising. We are targeting designers and non designers who have an interest in typography and want to learn more about it.”

Core77 Broadcast: Gary Hustwit in Helvetica, interviewed by Alissa Walker

2 comments (via)
Once simply the name of the most ubiquitous typeface on the planet, now the documentary Helvetica is becoming almost as ubiquitous--at least among members of the design community. The film not only tells the story of the typeface itself, from its birth in Switzerland fifty years ago to current gig as American Apparel mascot, but it also serves as an entertaining primer on modern graphic design, featuring major players from Massimo Vignelli to Experimental Jetset.
