TypeClap is the outcome of the collaborative workshop between the Master in Audiovisual Creativity (SISOMO) and the Master in Graphic Design (MGD/MDG) that was held during the week of July 10—17, 2020.
The aim of the workshop was to investigate how we can influence our perception of typography by adding movement and sound to it.
As a general rule we choose a font based on its drawing and shape. In the common imagination this is something static. In this workshop we tried to challenge this typographic paradigm by adding movement and sound to a custom-made alphabet.
Each character of this alphabet has been designed, animated and sonorized by a different student with total style freedom and only some rules for proportion, size and BPM.
We created this website to celebrate the TypeClap alphabet in a unique way: You can send plenty of funky messages to your friends and loved ones. Enjoy it! (even better with your headphones on)
