Inspired Typography – Lawrence Weiner

Our latest brief set us the task of creating a short animated film containing Kinetic Typography (Typography which appears in time to speech). First we researched to find a short speech by a creative practitioner whose words we found inspiring. For me this was Lawrence Weiner, and what he talks about during an interview with Debbie Millman. Not only am I a massive fan of his work, but felt it fell perfectly to my vision of words appearing in footage.

His Work:

So I took his style of typography, and gave it life. I spent a weekend shooting footage, and a day and a half editing the film and sound, before finally creating the animation. I’ve been without a laptop for a week and a half which is why it was slightly rushed but I’m quite pleased with the outcome.

This is really great! I found that original interview video on HillmanCurtis and have been going back to it here and there for little inspirational breaks. But this gave me goosebumps all over again!
