Very inspiring video and very useful for design students.

Ira Glass on Storytelling

Thanks for all your kind words guys! It’s quite overwhelming to see this shared and retweeted all over!

All sins typographic in nature have been amended, hopefully. Thanks for bearing with it the whole time. 🙂

As always, all credit due to the amazing Ira Glass.

Source audio is from this very seminal video by current.tv:

Made in three days on Illustrator and After Effects, for Day 6 of the #30daysofcreativity.

Never give up, just keep up working and the magic will happen.

Stephen Fry Kinetic Typography – Language

Follow me on twitter @rogerscreations

Using the wonderful words of acclaimed writer, actor and allround know it all (I mean that in the best of ways) Stephen Fry I have created this kinetic typography animation. If you like what you hear you can download the rest of the audio file from Mr. Fry’s website. www.stephenfry.com and then go to the audio and video section at the top of the page and look for the file entitled language. You can also find the file on iTunes by searching the name ‘Stephen Fry’s Podgrams’.

I loved this particular essay on language and I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make my first kinetic typography. I hope you like it and even if you dont I would like to heard what you think in the comments section. Also I know that at points the audio does not match the text so you do not have to write that. It is because I copied the transcript off of Stephen’s website and it was not 100% exactly what he said and i did not notice until I was well underway. However these cases are few and far between.

Just incase you were wondering the programs I used to make this were all by adobe. Mostly after effects but also flash and illustrator. Flash for the changing background colour transitions and illustrator for putting the words in to the shape of ‘language’ before loading it into after effects to animate.



The words and thoughts of Stephen Fry are pure music!

Mad As Hell! Kinetic Typography

Thanks, enjoy!

The words  from the 1976 movie “Network” and in 2013 they seem so appropriate in the world situation.

    Don’t suppose you’ve seen the music video for “Kopf verloren” by German rapper Peter Fox? It’s gloriously kinetic, and I’m sure it’s even better if you can understand the rapid-fire German (which I mostly can’t).
