Typographic Movies

Written by Thomas Baekdal | 2007-08-14 15:08:26

It is amazing what we can do with words, especially when we mix them with a bit of typography, creative thinking, motion and sound.

A lot of us (in the web developer profession) remember the excellent Web 2.0 movie that came out earlier this year (which I found over at JustAddWater.dk).

But, there are also a lot of people who are experimenting with typographic movies as art, which is really cool - and gives us a surprising sensation when looking at it.

Take this one based on Pulp Fiction. It is just brilliant.

...or what about these:

Ocean Eleven


Duck & Cover


The Lions Roar

Brazil Typography

Streetlight Manifesto

Hey Ya

Who's on first (funny)

Eleanor Rigby

Trusted Computing

Google Master Plan

The purpose of this article is to illustrate the marvels of typographic movies, not to make a political statement. Please see these movies as brilliant examples of graphic art, and leave it to other sites to discuss the politics.

Update: Added Google Master Plan and Trusted Computing, thanks!
