Typography in the Moving Image - Concepts, Innovations, Inspirations
In every size, on every platform, for every genre – the innovative handling of typography is of central importance in current motion design. Beyond print design, "type in motion" can offer emotional as well as entertaining and informational moving images. However, typographic design is often neglected and the potential of typography exploited too little.
During this two-day event organised by Eyes & Ears of Europe and MDR in Leipzig, outstanding examples of current TV promotion and design, commercials, festival intros, cinema titles and music videos will be presented. These examples show that typography in audio-visual media can be used according to different principles. Thus, they are a trigger for developing ideas for future projects.
This event from Eyes & Ears of Europe and MDR is aimed primarily at employees of media and communication companies, (post) production firms, design studios, consultancies, marketing, advertising and dialogue agencies who want to learn more about this topic. Students and trainees are also very welcome.
