For the love of fonts
March 11, 2011 § 2 Comments
As typophiles, we love everything that has to do with fonts and modern typography. And we just loved the floating version of the Akzidenz Grotesk typeface.
Playing with motion and typography, Cameron Zotter and Jinhwan Kim have created ‘elliptical forms’ of all the letters of the alphabet. By moving an iPod Touch in six rows and using long exposure photography, they have captured a floating image of each letter in a series of videos, which you can download, as the font itself.
Check out the process.
