Moshun, an animated typeface by Calango

Happy New Year y’all.

I’ve had a bit of a slow start to 2011 in terms of posting thanks to a very hectic holiday season but am well and truly back on the wagon now with this cracking animated typeface by dutch design studio Calango.





























A prediction for 2011 from me is that with the growing interest tablet based technologies, such as the iPad and the Playbook, interactive publications are going to become more and more common place (such asPhaidons Design Classics, and DK Eyewitness Travel apps) meaning we are going to be seeing a growing number of animated typefaces (good and bad) and the use of them in such apps.

BIG BANG BIG BOOM – the new insane wall-painted animation by BLU

I’ve been a fan of BLU for some time and have posted about him before on mymatedaves.

Here is his latest epic stop motion animation which goes beyond the use of just paint and he now combines it with the use of everyday objects too.

I can’t begin to think how long something like this takes to just storyboard (I cant see him making it up as he goes along!) let alone actually do the painting/animation.

Thanks Kitsune Noir for sharing
