6. PAUSE Typography Book
“PAUSE” is a typographic exploration into taking control of the moment. Things have been moving rapidly lately, and I often wish I had a remote that would allow me to pause everything and get caught up. The characters presented are caught in motion. They tear across the pages leaving jagged, nonuniform lines behind.
To achieve the look of these characters, I used Processing software to animate the type face Boreal. Each letter was divided into twenty tiles that were set to wave along the x and y axis of the sketch window.
First, I defined the starting point of the tiles’ motion and then defined where they would stop moving. Then, I wrote a code that would allow me to pause the animation and simultaneously capture the image.
