Daily Inspiration: The History of Typography in Stop-Motion

Working in advertising and branding, I think a great deal about typography. While I usually write words and let others sort out how they look on a page, typography can alter how we read words, perceive their meaning and ultimately enjoy them. Thus I find myself becoming a bit of a typography nerd.

That is precisely why I enjoyed this stop motion video explaining the history of typography.
It is a fun and fast moving piece. Very accessible to the beginner, yet interesting to the crusty old designer.

Graphic design student Ben Barrett-Forrest has a lot of fun, and gives us a great primer on typography.
Kudos Ben!
