While doing a little background research on an essay I’m writing on Typography in Flash I stumbled back upon a few little gems among the infinite library of personal bookmarks.
Ni9e.com follows the tradition of expressive typography with some excellent work grouped under ‘Typographical Illustrations’. The titles of each piece are simply the names of some well-know classic fonts, Book Antiqua, Century Gothic, Helvetica…. Over time an initially chaotic scramble of letter’s build into well-defined sketches and portraits. The soundtracks to the each work add another dimension, sometimes irreverently, as they play along while the illustration builds up on screen.
