Type in Motion: Innovations in Digital Graphics

Front Cover
Random House Incorporated, 1999 - Design - 176 pages
Exploding, liquidizing, floating, mutating--the use of type today knows no boundaries. Words on paper have become pictures in themselves, rather than simply segments of sentences. In the popular mediums of television and film, designers today paint moving pictures with words.

Type in Motion features projects in video, film, mixed media, digital and event print that are thematically grouped into five sections by the way the kinetic type is used: its precursors; its narrative function; its message potential; its plastic form; and its possibilities for ambient, interactive environments. The work of internationally recognized design studios including Bruce Mau (Toronto), Jonathan Barnbrook (London), and the MIT Media Lab (Boston) are shown alongside the most daring student work from around the world.

A dynamic design in itself, Type in Motion will set the standard for the future of typography and design.
