The typeface featured in this video was constructed from transparent acrylic and transparent elastic. All the characters were photographed 60 times at intervals of 6 degrees of rotation in order to produce the motion loop.
Each character in this kinetic typeface was designed by ‘blending’ two (essentially 1 dimensional) vector lines across a spatial plane in order to produce a 3 dimensional letter. The result is a set of characters that holds more possibilities than the standard 2 dimensional alphabets to which we are accustomed.
