DISCIPLINES

Typography

+Motion Design

DESCRIPTION

Rain & Ripple is a decorative typography. I experimented several kinds of media to present the type.

The decorative typography is derived from the rainy season in Shanghai. Drizzle brings about ripples in the river that fade away as time goes by.

 

Besides the basic font design, I enlisted several kinds of media to present the font.The first one is motion graphics. After selecting several verses related to the rain from Rabindranath Tagore’s poems, I presented the typography in this short video together with Kashiwa Daisuke’s “Swan Song” for piano.

Then, I came up with the artificial crystal craft and the laser engraving techniques, so that I can put the typography in the rain.

I also made a light box, and try a projector to project my typography and the video.
