When teaching typography, I sometimes like to start presentations off with an interesting video.
For example, a friend of mine just showed me the DVNO video.
I am suggesting we all pitch in and help each other build a library of typography videos to excite young design students. Imagine a room full of 18-24 year old 1st-2nd year design students who don’t know a lot about type, and if they do, they probably think it’s dull.

Thanks for your time.
