Imbroglio: an intricate and perplexing state of affairs.
Imbroglio is a small part of a much larger project creating and designing Nepal Type (http://www.nepaltype.com) a multifaceted display typeface co-designed by Appalachian State University seniors Joseph Toney, Aaron Fairbanks, and Jeremy Nolan-Cherry.
Aaron Fairbanks and myself collaborated together to develop an animated typographic treatment. By individually animating each upper case letter of our Nepal Bold typeface we could design interactive and repeatable patterns. Through doing this we wanted to find new uses for our type that went beyond legibility. Taking inspiration from graffiti writers, natures repeated patterns, rock cairns, and the mountains we live in we created a loopable digital experience to captivate our viewers
We hope to engage with our audience on the visceral level. Allowing one to analyze and understand the intricate state of our work while also letting a pure organic visual experience take form. I challenge the viewer to let your imagination run unimpeded as you travel through space and time on this enigmatic journey of typography.
This work was created with the intent to be projected onto the white walls of Alys Beach's Digital Graffiti Festival.
