Monotype Imaging | Elegy font from ITC | 2010
Director: Barnbrook | Animation: Barnbrook
Short film commissioned to mark the release of Elegy from ITC. A complete typeface made by Jim Wasco based on the Logo drawn by Ed Benguiat for Upper and Lower case Magazine. Typography is often thought of a technical subject however its close proximity to language means that it is very closely tied to human emotion and expression. These films were a way of both showing the font and hinting at the atmosphere or unique voice that you can create with a typeface.
