Ryan Perera‘s video based on a sequence from the film Kick-ass uses a hand-drawn style to reflect the brand’s comic book influences. It’s a great example of how drama and emotion can be expressed with moving type.

This masterpiece was, unbelievably, a graduation project by graphic designer Thibault de Fournas. The animation shows the evolution of typography from paper to screen in serious style. The first half of the video deals with the basic rules of typesetting, before moving on to the use of typography in cinema, with impressive effects running throughout – the tribute to Saul Bass being our favourite.
