Typography in music videos

One of the most important elements of Web design is typography. It’s hard to read any long block of text off a computer screen, so the text must be made as easy to read as possible. On the other hand, you want to have a little individuality and make the text attractive as well.

My favorite way to explain the importance of typography is through a few videos I’ve found in the past (and posted here) that use typography to convey emotions.

Today, via Information Aesthetics, I found a slew of such videos.

My favorite is the Bob Dylan video. Which is yours?

  • My favorite typography-based video is this one of a scene from Pulp Fiction. The type really reflects the tone of the words being said.

    Of the ones you linked to, I liked The Hush Sound and Frontier Psychiatrist videos best.
