CARLOS FLOREZ – Wartype Fonts

The evolution of warfare and the evolution of typographic fonts are put together in this short piece.

I’m not sure if I understood it, but the effect is… weird? Well, it’s better if you watch it yourself!

Designed, written, directed and produced by Carlos Florez. The soundtrack is Clubbed to Death by Rob Dougan.

L’evoluzione della guerra e dei caratteri tipografici vengono affiancate in questo breve pezzo.

Non sono sicuro di averlo capito, ma l’effetto è… strano? Mah, forse è meglio se ve lo guardate!

Progettato, scritto, diretto e prodotto da Carlos Florez. La colonna sonora è Clubbed to Death di Rob Dougan.

    The message could be “letters (ideas) are weapons as powerful as any kind of war” or so… I think it’s a good one.

    Well, that’s another possible explanation.
    What made me uneasy was that by juxtaposing the two things, they seemed to blur one into each other.
    You know, the kind of “no black, no white” thing.
    So that I was just seeing two different expressions of the same human character, complementary, like two faces of the same medal.

    Well, but why didn´t Mr. Florez use this Types in his film. Seems it´s all the same (Univers?)

    Uhm. We should ask him, I guess…

    Thank you guys for your comments and for posting my WARTYPEFONTS video. I first had each font design on its own name, but the mixture of all those different serif and sans-serif font designs throughout the video was too chaotic and took away from getting the concept across. So I decided on using only one well deisigned font as a generic presenter for all the fonts. But in the beginning of the video I did include each specific font design with its specific name.
    I’m glad to hear different point of views about how this video was perceived. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
    Thank you.
