Research (Cont.)

After sharing my experiments with Abby, and some discussion, I am wondering about creating a screen based font that would move, or could be moved by the user. During our discussion Abby up a valid point about the line between innovative experimental typography and cheesy glitter type. See Here...

Towards the end of my video Type Experiments 01 some very cool things begin to happen with a circle of light that warps the letter "A". I am wondering if perhaps through my research I have discovered a new path, or if I am steering in the wrong direction.

Similar things happen at the end of Type Experiments 02. The letter "A" begins to look almost holographic. This could also be an option, but I have not considered any interactive solutions yet.

I guess I'm kind of at a crossroads right now and need to figure out which direction I need to focus on.

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.
