Find & Share: Kinetic Type

I thought this video was a great find! It's an entire typographic and visual story about the five senses. What really captured my admiration was that everything in this video is analog, and shot in stop motion.

I also thought this was an interesting alphabet, wish I could see it in use rather, than just singular letters though.

Reverse Story Board: Marvel Comics

This motion graphic was produced by Imaginary Forces, and their product descriptions is as follows, 

"Marvel Enterprises hoped to distill its identity into an animated moment in time that would fuse Marvel's illustrious comic book history and its current film projects, while making an emotive connection with its audience. Our solution was a flipbook-style animation that transforms into typography, ultimately forming the Marvel logotype. The animation provides a modular, customized structure and serves as a point of interface between Marvel and its multi-generational audience. By imitating the act of reading comic books, we dimensionalized the piece and the brand both visually and conceptually, in form and content."

The video is 11 seconds longs.
