With a nod to the forms and shapes of analog-generated imagery, but fully digital, here’s another digital type project. Buchstabengewitter (perhaps translated “Letterstorm”), by Ingo Italic, uses generative patching to imagine type that emerges from three-dimensional clouds of geometry. It comes to us from the research laboratory at Letters are my Friend, the Berlin type hub mentioned earlier today. Description:

Each letter is animated and morphed in vvvv. I tried to push the limits of a readable animated glyph. Each letter can be morphed into any glyph of the alphabet. That makes it easy to blend also several words into each other. Also 3 Posters where painted for the presentation at Letters Are My Friends in Berlin.

    Wow, that is insanely awesome not only visually, but programming-ly as well. I would definitely love to know the algorithm

    Much much better than the vast majority of visual projects!

    I tried to recreate it (in vvvv). The patch is available for download here:
