For this particular project, I was given the assignment to design a piece of kinetic type accompanying a soundtrack. In Past Life by Tame Impala I wanted to emphasize the monotonous and spacious feel in the beginning of the track. With a black and white aesthetic, a combination of analog and digital work, and a classic animation technique, a feeling of floating around in empty space was created.

The type was drawn by hand, tracing printed type, scanned, animated frame by frame in After Effects, and looped when necessary.

For more with this animation technique, check out the project 40.
