Vídeos sobre Tipografía

TipografíaEn este post incluiré vídeos relevantes sobre el mundo de la tipografía.

Veremos temas como tipógrafos hablando de su trabajo artesanal, historias sobre imprentas, cómo funciona una imprenta, trabajos de animación y de diseño realizados con Illustrator, Photoshop, programas 3D e ideas y trucos para diseñar nuestras propias tipografías (poco a poco irán apareciendo todos estos temas). Durante las siguientes semanas iré añadiendo más información en este mismo post hasta que me parezca que ha crecido demasiado.

Una vez pasado el puente de tres días festivos, comenzamos la semana con una nueva actualización video-tipográfica :D.

Los Ultimos - Endless Letterpress from Endless Letterpress on Vimeo.

Los ultimos es un documental sobre la tipografia en Argentina, para poder terminarlo abrimos un crowdfunding:
Endless Letterpress is a documentary about present of woodtype presses in Argentina, help this project to come to completion:

La música es "Cumbietón Rutero" del disco Pesebre, de Axel Krygier -




Buenos Aires deepest suburbs, July 2013. Three old print shops disputes the printing of cumbia and boxing posters. Second and third family generations keep these old presses going on printing in the way that workshops worked 100 years ago: the same machines, letterpress and workers, as if time had not passed. But they are getting old, machines are breaking and workshops agonize. They are aware that the road ahead is short. They are the last letterpressers in Argentina.

However, in the chaos of Buenos Aires downtown, some young designers started printing posters and cards with this ancient technique. In their small ateliers they combine the old craft with modern materials and designs, keeping it alive. Inspired and energetic they face the limitations and reflect about the value of time.

These two worlds combines old knowledge with new visions. A new dimension, where time limits get diffuse. A new voice appears, which includes the workshops slow music and gives eternity to feelings experienced for all those years.

Endless letterpress is a film about typography, but above all, about a group of people passionate for an ancient craft. Will these old presses and workshops survive in a new art? Or it's a new fad?

Viendo este vídeo, se me ocurrió la feliz idea de hacer en Adobe Photoshop el cuadro que aparece en él alrededor del minuto 2:13. Las fuentes utilizadas son: Valentina y la Teutonic nº 1. Además, he aprovechado para realizar una camiseta que podéis ver más abajo.

El Oficio de La Tipografía en El Salvador (1950-1990) from El Oficio de la Tipografía (ES) on Vimeo.

Este es un documental corto, subproducto de un estudio que fue impulsado por el interés como diseñadores y porque vislumbramos dicho oficio como los incipientes pasos de una parte de la profesión del diseño en nuestro país. La primera fase del proyecto, consistió en la investigación para contestar la pregunta de investigación: “¿cómo fue el oficio de la tipografía?”.

Como objetivo se planteó hacerlo a través de las entrevistas realizadas a profesionales que estuvieron en el oficio de la tipografía entre el período que toma la investigación (1950-1990).

Con este material reconstruimos parte del pasado de la tipografía salvadoreña por medio de la representación de la información y la parafernalia tipográfica.
