Counterplay    Typographic Play

Typographic system inspired by play and circus aims to support literacy. This experimental process included translating motion and choreography of circus into simplified graphic animations of letterforms—capturing the vitality and potentially encouraging learning. Sketches: Observed circus performers’ movements and marked their position every two frames. Letterforms were identified within the drawings then envisioned into 3-dimensional forms. The self-initiated project was created in collaboration with Mei Ahn.
