Animated typography

Lasio grotesk

about the project

Originally conceived as an animation exercise, the "animated alphated" has become a typeface. Lasio grotesk is a sans serif typeface that only has uppercase characters. The reason for this limitation is that every letter morphs from a geometric form. This is not impossible to make with the lower case letters, but much more difficult..


Inittially the typography was based on the proportions of Paul RennerĀ“s masterpiece Futura because of his geometrical shapes. After dealing with path and shapes in After Effects I had to make some compromises. The thing is that I started to enjoy the changes on the design of each character and then I started to think on small changes that give the whole typeface a more personal look.
