  1. The Sony Music Timeline celebrates 125 years of musical history covering almost 150 square meters of wall space in Sony’s Derry Street offices. Using just CNC cut vinyl as the sole medium, 54 columns measuring over 2 meters tall cover feature nearly 1000 of Sony Music's signed artists from 1887 to the present day.

    This video was produced using time-lapse footage left over from the main cut. Watch that here: vimeo.com/51460511

  4. Typographer, graphic designer and businessman Erik Spiekermann has created timeless, influential and, yes, Meta-physical work over the past three decades.

    Next to founding MetaDesign and FontShop, the latter being the first ever digital distributor of fonts, and designing more instant classic typefaces than any other, he has been recognized as an outstanding expert internationally as a lecturer and professor.

    Listen to the design genius talk about new visual languages, design processes, the analogies of music and typography, and why we need better client culture in our latest Gestalten.tv video and you will easily realize why.

  5. A short monologue from the perspective of the typeface comic sans.

    By Joe Hollier

    The original monologue was written by Mike Lacher
    mcsweeneys.net/links/monologues/15comicsans.html

    The voice of Comic Sans was Stephan Pacuk.

    Music used was
    Beirut - A call to arms
    Bee Gees - Saturday Night Fever
    Children of Bodom - Downfall
    The Books - Thankyoubranch

    This was a class assignment for Paul Sahre's Typography class at SVA.
    Paul had asked us to write down our least favorite typeface and then make an animation about that typeface.
