Motyf 2018 Brief
MOTYF 2018 Virtual Types asks you to speculate on the future of typography in all its dynamic and interactive forms that include information / communication / interface / entertainment / system.
How will typography be presented in new and emerging technologies such as:
› Augmented Reality (AR)
› Virtual Reality (VR)
› Artificial Intelligence (AI)
› Chatbots & Talking Assistants
› Internet of Things (IoT)
› Autonomous Vehicles
Design a motion or interactive piece showing your imaginative vision of one future form of typography. The concept and content of your work can be anything from a fictional augmented reality (AR) interface to a motion piece quoting visions of the future.
You may choose to write or source any text appropriate for your concept. The forms and technologies suggested above present infinite possibilities. Your work can take any form, narrative, commentary, environment, prototype, advertisement etc.
Choose a future area you want to explore and demonstrate your concept in a motion or interactive piece. If your work is based on physical interaction via an environment or device (headset, touch screen, etc), please also send a video documentation of the piece. If your work is selected, the required equipment can be installed in the Motyf exhibition.
If you have designed a previous piece of work that is an example of future forms of typography these are eligible for entry.
Things you may consider
- How can typography make text more meaningful, accessible and engaging in a multimedia world?
- What does composition mean in interactive virtual environments?
- How can typography stimulate an emotional response in the audience?
- How can typographic systems help way-finding through complex data, information and environments?
