Although it's more calligraphy, it must be said that the movies by Job and Roel Wouters, are great.

How about these from our dear, dear Auntie Beeb? (BBC2 (the more upmarket of the Beeb's TV channels) had a rep for being a bit more imaginative and experimental with their idents).

An homage to the Herb Lubalin’s Mother & Child logo. Well done. After effects?

Is that the actual video or just another weak “look at me! I just discovered After Effects!” student project? If the Stones have sunk that low for video’s, this is a sad day indeed.

That, and the entire thing reeks of Bob Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues.

Even the melody. Disappointing.

I don't know for sure if the immortal ones commissioned the work or even gave it their Stones seal of approval ...or if it was simply commissioned by Universal ...or what.

Computer Arts featured the work...

The new David Bowie video - Where are we now?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIZ6J5S5_2k

There seems to be a homogeneity to the type(s) seen and used with the collection of memories n'stuff of the video set.

Is that Bookman Swash featured on a bag at 3:05?

This video seems to be about typefaces from a bygone era ...where are we now?

I think that's Bjork featured in the teddy bear's other head ...maybe.

Is that Bookman Swash featured on a bag at 3:05? = Yes

And it’s certainly not about typefaces, I’ll have to give it a few more views and do a little background but I’m pretty confident its referring to where we are regarding social and political contexts, the video footage on the screen behind them is most likely from a specific movement and I’d hazard a guess that his silent partner is a figure that is a clue to the context. She has to be important on a level other that musical artist given that she doesn’t sing.

Initial reaction with no research makes me feel “where are we now?” is a general declaration of S’s Fd up and we haven’t made any progress, in fact quite the opposite.

Thanks for the post. A great addition.

Np bro , rock on, glad to contribute.

For me it's that crystal skull which I think really interesting. Featured bold up front at the beginning and then sits isolated down on the floor/stage to the left of the double teddy bear throughout the video.

This is the promotional video for a current type design project I'm working on & trying to get the funding to finish it and release it as a libre font.

So, Guttenberg created blackletter? I accidentally closed the page as soon as he said that, so I missed the rest.

Heh. Agreed. If you read the comments on the YouTube page you’ll see many other comments to the same effect.

I saw that on BBC yesterday - it's very cool.
But: Where's the type?
