Animated Fonts, the next frontier

Typography is a beast - everyone uses fonts, they are integral part of every operating system and application, and still in 2012 the art of making type look good is in the hand of the creator. And here are now animated fonts to make it even harder beyond the new challenges that web fonts bring. Animated fonts make fonts even stronger in character and make them express a style and a story.

This will make it difficult to use these fonts beyond the classic script fonts or as a demo. One of these demos is Typogami. I think zou can just use it for a documentary about origami - at least in the animated form, but still - great idea and execution.

Download it for free on their Facebook page and read more about the font following the link.

Walt Disney and Salvador Dali - Destiny (Destino) - a 58 year production - very surreal, of course, and fascinating to watch...

The film tells the story of Chronos, the personification of time and the inability to realize his desire to love for a mortal. The scenes blend a series of surreal paintings of Dali with dancing and metamorphosis. The target production began in 1945, 58 years before its completion and was a collaboration between Walt Disney and the Spanish surrealist painter, Salvador Dalí. Salvador Dali and Walt Disney Destiny was produced by Dali and John Hench for 8 months between 1945 and 1946.

Dali, at the time, Hench described as a "ghostly figure" who knew better than Dali or the secrets of the Disney film. For some time, the project remained a secret. The work of painter Salvador Dali was to prepare a six-minute sequence combining animation with live dancers and special effects for a movie in the same format of "Fantasia." Dali in the studio working on The Disney characters are fighting against time, the giant sundial that emerges from the great stone face of Jupiter and that determines the fate of all human novels. Dalí and Hench were creating a new animation technique, the cinematic equivalent of "paranoid critique" of Dali. Method inspired by the work of Freud on the subconscious and the inclusion of hidden and double images.

Dalí said: "Entertainment highlights the art, its possibilities are endless." The plot of the film was described by. Dalí as "A magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time."

Walt Disney said it was "A simple story about a young girl in search of true love."
