New Short Shows Typography "From Paper to Screen"

Typography and the way words and language are written are a big part of what we think of as visual style. Colors, fonts, and animations give the written word a design life, and can make the message cool, lively, businesslike, staid or boring. This short by French graphic designer Thibault de Fournas shows how written communication has evolved with typography, just as the title describes, "From Paper to Screen".

Excerpt: "Take a quick lesson in typography from French graphic designer Thibault de Fournas in a short titled From Paper to Screen. Created as his Graduation Project, the animated short shows 'typography evolution from paper to screen,' including a fun lesson in how it evolved in cinema. Of course the biggest reference is Saul Bass, who 'changed everything' with the way he presented title screens. Ever since then we've been inundated with every kind of different title possible, but there are people like Woody Allen who still use the classic style-less B&W text. I've also got a soft spot for anything that uses "Clair de Lune" perfectly...

As described on Vimeo by de Fournas as his 'Graduation Project': 'Animation which shows typography evolution from paper to screen. The animation is divided in two parts. The first deals with the basic rules of typesetting. The second, is about the evolution of typography in cinema. Used mainly for Opening and Closing title.' The short film was directed by French graphic designer/filmmaker Thibault de Fournas."
