Back in March, I took a picture of the Roppongi Hills logo that Jonathan barnbrook designed, here are some more infos about the logo.

Young-Hae Chang make flash animations using simple type and soundtrack. The pace of the movie is determined by the dialogue that the type and the music have. The resulting animations can be beautifully poignant (like his latest Operation Nukorea), calm, sad, very confusing, too fast to read, overwhelming; many sensations conveyed by the talent of the creator orchestrating this dynamic.
I am unsure about the choice of the typeface and there may be room for improvement there. Obviously, typefaces have their own character and could add to the message but could also distract from it.
This reminded me of an idea I had a few years ago of type-animating a sequence of one of my favourite movies. Well, I’m closing in on the threshold.
