This image is the first in a week series that I’m going to be doing this week. I’ve been following the word of the day from dictionary.com and I thought I would be a good idea to to use it to do the design a day thing that many people have been doing in the design world.
So my goal is to create a design in 1hr based on the definition of the word of the day. Then on the week end I will take all five days and make some animation out of it. The font’s i’m picking from either lists on http://www.digitalhitchhiker.com ‘s type Tuesdays or on http://abduzeedo.com/. Using this plus 15 min time limit to limit my obsessive font search tendencies.
This word means the following items below, I choose to interpret the third.
Authorized; recognized; accepted.
Included in the canon of the Bible.
In mathematics, (of an equation, coordinate, etc.) in simplest or standard form.
In other news I created an animation inspired by turntable.fm that had an issue with some parts jumping randomly. I believe I found the culprit in my segmented rendering process based on this test that has no skipping anywhere. Just need to rerender and add the composite stuff I did before.
Lastly I created a quick edit of some of my 2d animation work. I did this a about a hour or so using premier to edit it all together without any crashes.
