Design an animated promotional graphic for the TYPO typography conference
TYPO is an international series of design talk//creative conference. TYPO 2018 will be in Berlin in May and the theme is Trigger.
Design a promotional animation for TYPO Berlin that could be used either on a website or via email/e-newsletter or social media to promote the event and encourage attendance and/or participation. Use only typographic elements in your design solution. All type must be “set type” not drawn or illustrated.
solution must include:
May 17–19, 2018
format: square (5 x 5 inches)
length: not as important as concept and use of typography, but fairly short

TYPECON is an annual conference held every year by the Society of Typographic Aficionados. The branding is customized each year for each location. Here are some downloadable wall papers from past conferences to give you an idea about approach.)
The motion work of this firm, Playground Paris
as well as: Chris Piascik Animation
step 1: concept options sketches
step 2: storyboard two options (as graphics or tight sketches, your choice)
step 3: present 4 still screen designs for each concept
(as if you are pitching multiple options to a client or your art director…aiming to communicate the animated activity without fully investing in executing the animation at this stage until they’ve settled on the concept they want to use.) Minimal directions/copy may be necessary to explain certain activities.)
step 4: execute final animation for (one) chosen direction.
deliverables (what to turn in)
