If Isaac Newton and Johannes Gutenberg Had a Baby…
Well, hello there again.
A wildly mild summer, if I have ever seen or heard or experienced one. Getting mugged in New Orleans, building up some portfolio work, and getting my life back in order to design again. It’s been an experience.
I’m back though. Back to school.
So, as we know, Motion Design is a huge gateway into interactivity as a designer. I have very little typographical experience with Motion, so I look forward to the challenge to jumping into something as egregious as this.
But without further ado, let’s delve into some motion.
My Choice: “The Daily Buggggggggggle”
Not gonna lie—I love Spiderman. The new ones completely change the entirety of the universe to fit better to the comics, but there’s a special, special place in my heart for the Toby McGuire movies. They somehow juxtapose drama with cringe (let’s not talk about Spiderman 3).
When getting to my final audio choice, I went through so many different ideas but chose the Daily Bugle choice because of it’s pace and humor. That was something I wanted to make sure that I was able to achieve with this 45-second clip. J. Jonah Jameson uses hyper-speed dialogue that’ll be fun to push and make into silly typographical design, coupled with Peter Parker’s simple question and then the screech.
The Audio File
J. Jonah Jameson :’Bout time, where were you? Crazy scientist blows himself up, and we don’t have pictures!
Joseph ‘Robbie’ Robertson : I heard Spider-Man was there.
J. Jonah Jameson : [annoyed] And where were you, photographing squirrels? You’re fired!
Miss Brant : [Peter turns to leave] Chief, the planetarium party.
J. Jonah Jameson : Oh right, you’re unfired, get back here!
J. Jonah Jameson : Come here. Parker, what do you know about high society?
Peter Parker : Oh… well, I…
J. Jonah Jameson : Don’t answer that. My society photographer got hit in the head by a polo ball. You’re all I got. Big party tonight for an American hero, my son the astronaut.
Peter Parker : [serious] Could you pay me in advance?
[Jameson laughs hysterically for a few seconds]
J. Jonah Jameson : You serious? What, pay you for just standing there? Tomorrow night, the planeterium, 8:00. There’s the door.

For some Reason this isn’t optimizing. I blame Edinboro Internet. Bah.
