Credits: made by Chris Davey
Duration:0.36

A hypnotic interpretation of Sonnet 30 (“When to the sessions of sweet silent thought”), produced by a graphic design student set the task of creating a TV ident for a BBC series (presumably an academic exercise rather than one that was actually used by the BBC). Words drift in and out, laterally and vertically, overlaid upon themselves, artfully playing with fonts and layout, a typographer’s reverie. It’s a satisfying visual reading that demonstrates what power words have alone to catch the eye.
