Type in Motion -story telling

April 24, 2014

Letters become words, words in turn formulate ideas.

    The goal of this visual expression in motion is to develop and produce a 

    40-60 quicktime movie flash based video using the power of 

    letterforms to describe a narrative event.

Things to think about:

• legibility and readability

• context mood and drama

• story telling verbally and visually

• instill a feeling

• pace and rhythm

• time and timing

• voice and texture of type- shape size and color, position, 


• reveal and project meaning

• beginning and end

• memory, confession, joke. etc.

    • look at advertisements on television

    • develop a storyboard that utilizes type to show, and describe 

       what the piece is going to be.
