Typo Graphic

This week we saw inspired typography at play where we least expected it: blood, sky, speeches. Plus, a touch of Brooklyn eye candy for good measure.

Written in Blood – simply gorgeous motion work matches words and music with surprisingly lovely water-bound blood. Done for Konzerthaus Dortmund.

Urban Lettered – photos find a whole alphabet in the blue sky between buildings. Gotta love negative space.

Speaking of al Qaeda – Bush speech with everything but 9/11, Iraq, al Qaeda, and the like blacked out. Proximity alert?

City Type – cleverly used text as data in a new exhibit that compares size, speed, form, density and diversity among 10 major cities worldwide

Brooklyn Single Shot – wicked body language in this uncut on-crutches video for RJD2’s Work It Out. And don’t miss his different but equally arresting 1976 video from a few years back.

    Thanks, man! All the videos I’ve seen from him have been pretty clever. I hope they’re collected somewhere eventually.
