Animography has been a leader in creating animated typefaces for motion designers and editors for a while, but they recently put together a collaborative animated typeface from one type designer, Derek Weathersbee, and 110 animators. Each animator was allowed to choose a glyph and animate it using no more than 4 colors and 25 frames. Each glyph was created on a 500 x 600 pixel canvas inside of After Effects. Individual pieces have been popping up all over the web for a weeks now, but the full typeface is finally available to download for free here.
The file contains all the keyframes, expressions and artwork from the artists. This makes it a great learning source for motion students and professionals.
The line-up of animators who worked on this project is pretty impressive. Some of my favorite young artists to work on this project include JR Canest, Phong Luong and Nicolas Gerard.
