I have not had Starbucks in the past few days, and I am in dire need to get some soon! LOL But seriously I need some Starbucks. The lack of it is starting to come up in my work and YouTube watching:
I know that Election Day has passed, but I did not have the chance to view this commercial from Starbucks when it first came out. The font used for the animation was interesting, especially when "inconvenient" was having a struggle with "When it was". You can feel the pushing and the weight between both forces. I also liked how the words would come on beat with the melody of the music. That is always a treat for me (played drums for years). Another thing that is interesting are the words that are being bigger than others, as a way to put more emphasis on them. Like "VOTE", "COMMUNITY", "WORLD", and "CARE", just to name a few examples.
The other reason why I like the type is it's green. Green is my favorite color, and sadly, not many designers know how to do green justice. Seriously, not many green t-shirts are tasteful. Anyways, thought I shared what I found interesting as I continue to learn and analyze graphic design.
Oh, and here's a type sketch I did for my typography class:
Again, I really need some Starbucks. And I am going to push this image further a bit. Or at least try again with more direction and exploring.
