YouTube Typographies

The above (Typolution) is a clip by Olivier Beaudoin.  It’s a story about the creations that pure rain causes and the destruction that results from acid rain at the end–how we evolved from a pure earth to a polluted one. It’s set to Ratat’s “Nostrand”.  This typography is really effective because it uses text in novel ways to create not only a story but art.  The music flows really well with the progression of the storyline.

The second typography I chose was someone who did one to the TV channel Court TV: RED. Real Exciting Drama.  I feel this was done especially well. The text moves along with the action of the piece, and effectively mimics the drama behind ambulance and police.  In a car chase, car tire tracks chase along and crash into text, mimicking a high speed car chase.
