While reading from the Triggs book, I came across the work of Robert Brownjohn and discovered how similar his work was to some of the experiments I have been conducting.

Brownjohn was inspired by watching the effect of still type projected onto moving bodies as people arrived late for a slide presentation. He went on to do several projects based on this idea including the title sequences for 'From Russia With Love', and 'Goldfinger'

From Russia With Love Title Sequence

Goldfinger Title Sequence

Brownjohn attended the Institute of Design in Chicago and graduated in 1950. After graduating, he moved to New York to pursue his graphic design career. Early experiments included the booklet "Watching Words Move" in which he re-designed words like "add" and "subtract" to "+dd" and "-tract".

In 1963 his work began to shift to moving type. It was in this year he produced the title sequnce for "From Russia With Love". The following year he was hired again by the producers of the James Bond series for the title sequence for "Goldfinger".

Robert Brownjohn died in 1970.

From sparkly unicorns, to glow-in-the-dark dolphins, these new fashion rubber bands
silly bandz have everyone talking. With the thousands of different varieties to choose from, children and

young adults have found it easy to grab onto this new fad. Plus, the price is right --the average price for a theme pack of 24 is around $4. Most of us think, “Oh! What a steal;

that’s such a great price.” When the reality of it is, the cost of 24 regular rubber bands is less than $1. Why pay more for shaped rubber bands, when you can have regular ones

for cheaper? Sure, they’re fun to play with and are a great conversation starter, but what is it about them that’s so fascinating, or for some, not fascinating? Students at Monte

Vista either love them or hate them. bakugan toys.
