Here are some typography-related videos.

This video is a beautiful brief introduction to typography. Typography is what language looks like - Ellen Lupton. A good typographer is someone who communicates a point of view with skill and imagination and makes the type taste good—Jeffrey Keedy

An interesting use of type. The typewriter font mimics those used in old police reports. Individual letter forms are animated to illustrate characteristics of, in this instance, a serial killer.

  1. This is one of my favorite sections of the website. I love watching type in motion. I’ve also been wanting to see the entire documentary on Helvetica. Good Stuff!

    If you find any other good type videos, then let me know, and I’ll post them here.

  3. Will do! My only concern is that this section of the website is a little hard to find if you’ve never been here before. Maybe you could highlight it somewhere. I know the site is starting to get crowded and complex but it’s just a thought. :)

  4. Robert
    Actually, I’m wondering how you found it at all. Perhaps I should at least add it to the Typography Tags, under “video”.

  5. Well I think thats where I found it, but its kinda hidden because it reads like this Typoholism Univers 55 video

  6. http://www.esad.pt/personalviews/

    ESAD(Portuguese School of Arts and Design) has this series of videos of renown designers speaking at their auditorium. Erik Spiekermann’s speech is brilliant, he’s such a funny man!

    Thanks very much for those links. I’ve added a couple of them.

    I was watching these videos again last week. I’ll be posting one of them in the next news item. Thanks for the reminder.

  8. I love these motion typography videos. It’s actually really hard to do (or do well, at least) — believe me, I’ve tried. I found a bunch of really cool ones here:

    Some of them you already have — but I think there are others worthy of mention. :)

    Thanks for the link. I’ve seen most of them, but there are a few new good ones. I’ll dig through and post some more here.

  10. Robert
    I think I should add a link to the videos in the sidebar. Thanks for mentioning.

  11. No prob. ;)
