Have we ever done it ?

We closed the motion week working in a team to build up this little clip. We got the soundclip and did the animation based on our brainstorming.
When I was on my holiday to finland, I decided to buy Spore. I finally had time to install it last thursday. I've played some 50 hours now, and counting. I'm a very strong race in space, knowing how i'll get to the finish.

Made up some sketches of the upcomming coffee-place poster that I'll set in my own typeface, in addition to Divad Round.

Retrospective and Motion Week

I've been on my first holiday to Finland last weekend. There I met some old friends, as well as some new, and had a great time.

The typeface is getting a litle more character and caracters. I'm going easy on the development, as I'm in no hurry. It's getting really grotesque and I like it, fuck the humanism. My first intended use for the font is to make a few b/w posters and flyers for a café downtown. Fresh typography doesn't need that much other stuff by it's side. The main future trends in digital media that my class found in our research were:
  • Mobility
  • Interactivity
  • Community
  • MashUp
  • Personality
This week is a motion week. We're getting down with Flash ans AfterFX. In Flash I've been going deeper into the world of particles. As my intention is to do typography with particles, I made a little antigravity demo yesterday. Click for 50 UP. Today I opened AfterEffects for the first time. We should make some short bumper for a imaginary nature show. I somehow associated my idea to palstic animals.

Got carried away and suddenly I found myself drawing a typeface. I think this one could finally be my first real font. I made up the basic forms for h and a out of modular pieces (straigts and turns) in the beginning, the rest of the hamburgefontsiv was constructed upon these shapes. Those are the basic characteristical letters that the rest of the alphabet can easily be constructed from. Now I'm modifying and smoothing the lettershapes. We'll be easily ready with our group assignment tomorrow. I'll try to make a web version of it too.
