type collective

in one giant post… b. huff and i went around the crossroads and photographed so awesome type. here are a few of my favorites that I took//

and our presentation of initial findings and paragraph about the crossroads //

we decided we think it would be fun to try and figure out a flip book using a majority of our images and playing with saying kansas city one way, and then crossroads the next. here are the videos of inspiration from the presentation // https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s26FQlb2ZPw&feature=share https://vimeo.com/60582756 we made a miniature to help figure out how text would work, and then figured out our page scale and grid for the images, as well as storyboard out the animation of the color and text //

we went on to write our copy… KANSAS CITY | CROSSROADS  Just a step away from downtown Kansas City, The Crossroads is an eclectic hub for the visual arts. With countless galleries and restaurants filling up renovated warehouses and industrial buildings, this little neighborhood has plenty of character to go around. Home of First Fridays and concert events, do not miss out on what these streets have to offer. JAN 30, 2015 | A COLLECTION  Home to ad agencies and art galleries, the movement of the crossroads is not evident on the streets on a brisk Friday morning in February. Pop inside a coffeeshop or place of work and things are brought to life. Waiting for a warm beverage, people are conversing and checking their email on their laptops as they enjoy their breakfast. Home to creatives and rebels alike, the alley ways sport bright colors and distinguished typographic styles. The industrial buildings and loft spaces combine history with modernism. Cultures combine and flourish together in this Kansas City neighborhood. and then a bunch of page cutting out later, here’s our final book in motion! https://instagram.com/p/0EmimMI5HU/?modal=true
