Kinetic typography (opens in new tab) is used in all sorts of creative outlets. Providing a beautiful and inspiring way to showcase stellar fonts, the animation technique brings words to life. One such inspiring example comes from this new video for Coldplay's latest single 'Atlas (opens in new tab)'.
Set to feature on the Hunger Games: Catching Fire (opens in new tab) soundtrack, the lyric video was created by New York-based agency Blind Pig (opens in new tab) - sister company to Absolute Post (opens in new tab) - in collaboration with creative agency Hugo & Marie (opens in new tab). The team effort has executed one of the best uses of kinetic typography we've come across in a while.
Directed by Mario Hugo (opens in new tab), the illustrations are largely based around the celestial sky map and myth by Micah Lidberg (opens in new tab). Animation creative directors Ric Comline (opens in new tab) and Jonny Bursnell (opens in new tab) ensured that the video would be a seamless animation sequence, with both agencies providing gorgeous inspiration.
