Fun Friday: Kinetic Typography

Today’s Fun Friday videos use kinetic typography to illustrate audio clips. Above, the famed Abbot & Costello “Who’s on First” routine.

The poem, “So You Want A Social Life, With Friends” by Kenneth Koch.

This last one is my personal favorite of these. It’s another poem, about having conviction.

I love how you can get wrapped up in the words moving by. It’s a different sensory experience than just watching a video clip of the people speaking. I get caught up in the motion of the changing words … it gives them more weight, so to speak. If you want more kinetic typography videos, check out The Inspiration Blog’s Top 10 list.

Live the Language

EF Language Schools has crafted a series of well-executed commercials that view more like art. I especially enjoy the juxtaposition of images and typography into a fluid whole — but then, I’m a sucker for that! The videos/commercials also capture the sense of wonder and adventure that traveling somewhere new evokes.

Makes my toes itch to do a little traveling!

In addition to the Paris video above, EF has also made videos for Barcelona, Beijing and London.
