    This Kinetic Typography project was created from the dialogue of Conan O'Brien's final episode of The Tonight Show on NBC. In this farewell address, he describes his feelings towards NBC and the situation at hand. His personality exudes positivity and humor allowing this dialogue to describe his character very well. Even through the hardships of leaving NBC he promotes hard work and kindness.

    The concept behind this video is to show Conan O'Brien as the monumental entertainer and solid wall that he is. Conan O'Brien is and will continue to be a seasoned television entertainer. After drawing inspiration from Lou Dorfsman's Gastrotypographicalassemblage, this concept was achieved by creating a literal wall from over 60 individual typographic layouts. These custom crafted layouts reference a variety of eclectic type design. The combination of eclectic typography and modern 3D letter forms achieved in Cinema 4D provides a contrast between old and new. This contrast emphasizes time to create a sturdy and timeless object. This solidity and timelessness is the perfect representation of Conan O'Brien.

  5. When an idea materializes into paper and continues to magically transform into a deep red fabric, the only thing you can do is let go and follow your heart. We hope you enjoy it!

    "Love what you do and believe in what you do" Samantha Sotos

    The ‘Art of Making’ series aspires to display and highlight people who go against the spirit of today’s pessimism and desperation. They dare to dream and create with zeal and imagination. Armed with passion for knowledge and emotion, they attempt to combine the precision of science with the elegance and resourcefulness of art. We thank them wholeheartedly for their contribution.

    Όταν η ιδέα αποτυπώνεται σε χαρτί και αυτό με ένα μαγικό τρόπο μετατρέπεται σε βαθύ κόκκινο ύφασμα, το μόνο που μπορείς να κάνεις είναι να αφεθείς και να ακολουθήσεις την ψυχή σου. Ελπίζουμε να το απολαύσετε!

    Η σειρά ‘The Art of Making’ φιλοδοξεί να αναδείξει και να προβάλλει τους συναναθρώπους μας, οι οποίοι πέραν από το πνεύμα του καιρού, την απαισιοδοξία και την μοιρολατρία, επιμένουν να ονειρεύονται και να δημιουργούν με πάθος και φαντασία. Αυτοί οι εραστές της γνώσης και της συγκίνησης επιχειρούν να συνδυάσουν την οργάνωση και την ακρίβεια της επιστήμης με την κομψότητα, την λεπτότητα και την επινοητικότητα της τέχνης. Η προσφορά τους ανεκτίμητη και τους ευχαριστούμε.
