Down to the Letters: Amusing Animated Helvetica Alphabet

[ By Delana in Architecture & Design & Gadgets & Geek Art & Technology & Futurism. ]

Unusual fonts and fun typefaces are fantastic enough, but when you combine unusual typefaces with stop-motion animation you’ve got something really special. The Alphabet 2 project from Italian creative firm N9veanimates the alphabet in a delightful series of Helvetica letters.

Every letter in the short animated video is part of a scene involving a word beginning with that letter. From anamorphosis to journey to yeti, each letter is carefully created in a wide variety of materials and animated in fun little tableaux.


The short video is something of a recreation of the old hornbooks: primers once used to teach children the alphabet. If you ever need a refresher on your ABCs, this awesome animated hornbook might just be the best way to jog your memory…and even if you don’t, it’s a fun way to spend a couple of minutes.
