I like these little animations by Brent Clouse of Atlanta, GA. They were created for a collaborative project organised by Animography.net. The criteria for animating each character is limited to four colours, within 25 seconds.
Animography.net is a webshop/typefoundry that provides motion designers, video-editors and others in the field of the moving image with animated typefaces.
This woke me up this morning (and I know how Tumblr likes an animated gif in the mornings). This has been animated by Jason Wong, from Friends of Type, for his colleague’s new baby.
Neon “t” for Tumblr
I spotted this simple, flickering, neon animated gif on Tumblr earlier (I’m as attracted as a moth to good neon letters). I noticed that it had gathered close to a whopping 100,000 likes and reblogs [now over 200,000!]. It’s attributed to vicforprez from California, who specialises in making these animated files.
