Moving Types - Letters in Motion.
A retrospective of the beginnings of film to the present day.
First augmented exhibition catalogue with 'integrated cinema'
‘Moving Types – Letters in Motion’ reflected the use of ‘text in motion’ from the beginnings of film to the present, in which mobile media systems transform the shaping and reading of text into a completely new, mobile, networked exchange of information that engages various senses. In a retrospective, over 300 historical and current media formats are presented by international artists, filmmakers and designers, including Muriel Cooper, Paul Jeffrey Sharits, Étienne Robial, Ludovic Houplain, Gary Hill, David Small, Alex Gopher and Matthias Zentner. Presented in the catalogue are, among others, the historical habillages of the ARTE theme nights, music videos from Bob Dylan to Soko, ARTE station logos, Al Jazeera, RTL and the historical MTV Art Breaks, the colorful brand world of the Oscar Award winning short film “Logorama” or the advertising world from Mercedes to Nike. As an exhibition catalogue with “integrated cinema” ‘Moving Types’ writes its own piece of media history. More than 80 film clips are made available to the reader by means of a QR code via a personal Moving Types APP (iOS/Android)

Transformation in Typography –
Through the Medium of the Screen
This significant volume presents just a sample from the range of academic research, teaching pedagogies, student projects and professional works by designers leading the emerging field of screen typography. The book is divided into three parts that represent and examine the key theme of each of the three conferences mentioned above: Moving Types (2016), Virtual Types (2018) and Future Text.
Typography continues to transform through the medium of the screen and this book documents the start of this journey. It is the hope of the editors, authors and collaborators represented here, that you will find valuable learning, and be inspired to continue, or to begin, your own exploration into the fascinating world of text and typography as it develops and progresses into the future.
